My Current Song: Park Bench, 'Castaway'

From Sunday Morning, 10:53 am on 6 March 2022

Park Bench is a four piece alternative band from Auckland's Western Springs College. The band is comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Sam Boston, drummer Finn Bailey, bass guitarist Zac Green, and keyboardist/pianist Leo Main Bennett. They got together in music class and hope to keep things going once their secondary schooling is completed at the end of the year. We're joined by Sam and Leo to discuss their current track, 'Castaway,' which was used during the America's Cup in 2021, the band's many and varied influences, and the creative process behind their songwriting.
