The Brunettes - Live at The Kings Arms

From RNZ Music

Auckland's queen bees of twee-pop haven't played much around these parts lately, the last couple of years have seen tours with American indie bands The Shins and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, a record contract with legendary label Subpop, and core brunette Heather Mansfield staying put in New York. Whether playing as a five piece or a ten piece 'Orchestrette', the Brunettes utilise anything that makes a sweet noise, including marimbas, banjo, cello, trumpet and saxophone.
