Friday 22nd July
Grawlixes celebrate their sophomore album with a 12 date headline tour this July/August.
Grawlixes are an existential folk-pop band from Wellington, New Zealand, who will sear themselves in your brain with raw, wry and infectious songs about doomed relationships, not being invited to parties, and wanting to murder each other. Continuing the great lineage of artists who bring sadness to their sprightly melodies, Grawlixes’ music often deals in the melancholy with self-deprecating honesty and beautiful boy-girl harmonies, sung by co-founders Robin Cederman (Tahu & The Takahes, The Prophet Hens) and Penelope Esplin (French for Rabbits, Lake South).
Grawlixes signed to Home Alone records, following an extensive European tour supporting now label-mates French for Rabbits, throughout Switzerland, England, Germany and France. They released their debut album ‘Set Free’ in July 2017 to critical acclaim, reaching #9 in the NZ Album Charts. And have since expanded into a stellar 5 piece band, featuring esteemed local musicians Alex Vaastra on violin (Julian Temple Band, Emily Fairlight), Emma Hattaway on bass (BoJack Funkman) and Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa on drums (Dawn Diver, French for Rabbits).
“Speaking with spine tingling and ethereal impact, Grawlixes set themselves apart as two distinguished songwriters …with an undeniable potential for profound lyricism and a bottomless folk rock diversity,” Happy (Australia).
