Hailing from Nelson, the three piece electronica act started 15 years ago as a covers band, but when they added a drum machine to the mix, drummer Ruth Carr was moved to the front of the stage as the band's vocalist. After several EPs, the group released its debut album The 88 in 2003. Over the intervening years, the band released four albums, with their most popular track being 2009's 'Aotearoa'. Several other songs have been used in various TV shows both locally and internationally. The band recently announced their retirement and are playing their final two shows in Auckland this week.
