French for Rabbits Summer Tour

Even the best summers seem like distant dreams when winter comes – rose tinted and faded like old photographs. Wellington dream-pop duo French for Rabbits will be touring New Zealand this January and February for a combination of a twelve-concert tour and summer swims through the cities and smaller places of the North and South.

This will be the second New Zealand summer tour for French for Rabbits bookending a year spent recording their debut album (due out in 2014) and touring through Europe for the first time. The successful tour took them across the continent performing nearly fifty shows through the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, the Netherlands, and France.

For this tour, they will be joined at a number of the shows by their new band, with Hikurangi Scheverin-Kaa (City oh Sigh) on drums, and Ben Wood (Trinity Roots, Newtown Rocksteady) playing bass and singing harmonies.

A note: if you enjoy slightly odd, sometimes witty banter and/or nostalgia-laced songs, melancholic dreamscapes and mesmerizing songsmithery – please come

“What can I say? I am grateful to have discovered the immediately soothing and gorgeous music of French for Rabbits. French for Rabbits is a dream folk duo from New Zealand. Vocals, music, powerful enough to cast a dreamy hold of you from head to toe. If you are looking for something new to listen to these days, this is it.”… (loudvine.com)

City Oh Sigh release video for new single Sometimes

City Oh Sigh Sometimes

Home Alone Music is proud to present Sometimes, the first single from Wellington chamber-folk band City Oh Sigh’s forthcoming album Fragments Fine. The song, and corresponding video, whimsically capture the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life.

City Oh Sigh comprise four of the Wellington music scene’s most talented musicians. Three of them also appeared in the all girl power-pop octet St Rupertsberg. Lead by cellist/singer Kate Uhe, City Oh Sigh is an impressive evolution. They carefully craft soulful songs that capture audiences with their softness and beauty. The band combines unique cello laden instrumentation with subtle elements of folk and minimalist pop.

Fragments Fine was recorded by Wellington sound wizard James Goldsmith (So So Modern, Grayson Gilmour, PikaChunes, etc) and will be released on the 24th of February 2014.
