After building up some serious steam on their recent debut Australian run supporting Ocean Alley’s sold out ‘Chiaroscuro’ album release tour, New Zealand dub rockers Tunes of I have signed with 123 Agency and will return to Oz in August for their very first headline showcase. The Wicked Ways tour will see the psychedelic six piece revisit Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for three intimate shows only!
Formed at Wellington's famed NZ School of Music in 2011, the jazz trained collective boasts a heavy hitting rhythm section, complemented by two of New Zealand's finest horn players. Their dynamic live performance has seen them billed on some of their homeland’s top music festivals and share the stage with the likes of UB40, The Original Wailers and Sticky Fingers.
Highly skilled musicians in their own right, Tunes of I draw inspiration from New Zealand’s rich history of world renowned roots music, while adding in their own eclectic mix of dub, rock and funk flavours that see them placed as one of the country’s most promising new music exports.
Joining them on all three shows are Sydney-based New Zealand three piece ManaLion with their high energy dirty roots / dubtronic sounds.
