Tame Impala & The Eversons added to Auckland Laneway line-up
We here at Laneway NZ Headquarters are fizzing with excitement for today’s announcement! Fuck the metaphorical Advent calendar and the imaginative cardboard squares counting down to this date – let's just get to the announcement you've been waiting for…
The last International band being added to the NZ Laneway Festival lineup for 2013 is: TAME IMPALA
This Australian psychedelic rock project, fronted by Kevin Parker, caught our eyes and ears after the release of their fantastic debut album Innerspeaker in 2010 and we've been asking the band to play Laneway NZ ever since. In October this year, Tame Impala released another stonker - Lonerism - a meaty 12 track psych-rock stunner, already crowned as NME’s 2012 Album of the Year, triple j’s Album of the year for 2012, and gaining hugely positive reviews and accolades all over the world including here in NZ. With that, we are stoked they have agreed to play Laneway Festival 2013. The band's sound is described as youthful and often romantic – creating tracks that fall into a melting technicolour dreamcoat made from LSD. Perfect to witness and experience at the best NZ summer Festival – Laneway.
And adding in an extra local band for good times: THE EVERSONS
The Eversons are a group from Wellington who produce witty, punchy guitar-based pop tunes. This is the new project of Mark Turner (Little Pictures), though now he's traded in his Roland sample pad for a guitar and taken his music more into the territory of The Modern Lovers and Pavement.
Tame Impala and The Eversons will join the following artists in the spectacular setting of Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter on Monday 28th January (Auckland Anniversary Day):
