Die! Die! Die!

One moment their pop and punk roots are showing, the next they’re pure experimental thrash, the next they sound like an all-girl nineties band doing the Arctic Monkeys.

Genre doesn't sit comfortably for Die! Die! Die! One moment their pop and punk roots are showing, the next they're pure experimental thrash, the next they sound like an all-girl nineties band doing the Arctic Monkeys. Which is to say that they have range. They made their second album in a broken barn, and since their third — FORM — they've been recording in an Auckland bookshop. On Wednesday March 30, they'll be getting their kit out on stage at the equally accessible Beach Road Hotel in Bondi.

The New Zealand trio formed and reformed a few times before settling on their current line-up. Having started out unemployed, with the humble ambition of just making a bit of money off their shows, the group moved on to near-perpetual touring and playing support for Wolfmother and Marylin Manson. They can command some pretty big shows, and have done the Big Day Out and the arena thing as well. In Bondi, by contrast, they're playing free and relatively low-key. So if you want your music strange, thoughtful and at speed, you know where you'll need to be.
