Wellington trio Mermaidens - guitarist and vocalist Gussie Larkin, bassist and vocalist Lily West and drummer Abe Hollingsworth released their debut album Undergrowth last year.
Inspired by the music of PJ Harvey and Patti Smith, Warpaint, The Mint Chicks and So So Modern, it's an album of soaring melodies and crushing discordance.
We caught the trio live at The Others Way Festival 2016.
Songs: Under The Mountain II, Wander, Undergrowth. Dive
Composer: Gussie Larkin, Lily West, Abe Holingsworth
Recorded by Andre Upston for RNZ
