Claire Duncan probably has more in common with Wellington acts like Seth Frightening or the snowy sounds of Glass Vaults, rather than the raft of - as she puts it - "scuzzy-guitar-punk-bands" that populate venues in her hometown of Auckland. You can hear Duncan's fondness for hypnotic textures and spare melodies on her second Dear Time's Waste album 'Some Kind of Eden'. Nick Atkinson heads down to practice space The Killing Room as Claire and Deer Park's Shannon Walsh work up the new material ahead of a national tour. 31 August 2012.
