Your NZ Music Month 2022 playlist, sorted
What started out as a way to get more homegrown tunes on the radio all the way back in the year 2000 is now a fully-fledged, 31-day celebration ...
All our pop dreams are coming true this winter as the sonic sounds of Drax Project head our way, along with Mitch James and special guest AACACIA.
From humble beginnings as music students busking on the street, Drax Project have grown into an exceptional band who've won over crowds at every single one of their recent performances, from their own headline shows to international festivals and opening for such household names as Ed Sheeran, Christina Aquilera, Lorde and SIX60.
With catchy tracks that have any audience bopping along, this is one of New Zealand's most-watched groups and one of the world's must-see live acts. Singles from their self-titled debut album have been streamed over 300 million times and have collected 18 platinum certifications to date.
Mitch James is a Kiwi-born, Australian-based singer songwriter whose star is rising fast. After multiple headline shows across New Zealand and winning Best NZ Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards, Mitch is back with an introspective new single, 'Be Somebody' and ready to soar to new heights - and what better way to do that than on a tour with his good mates Drax Project!
AACACIA's mix of R&B and pop melodies makes the perfect accompaniment to this wicked pairing, and her signature vocal talents and thoughtful lyrics will ensure she makes a splash of her own.
