Description Mana ('Maori' New Zealand indigenous people) A super natural force believed to dwell in a person or sacred object. Integrity, charisma, prestige. Lion - You know what a lion is. BiographyThree Kiwi (New Zealanders) brothers (most likely from different mothers) maybe we met in Austalia in 2012 on Sydney's Northern Beaches, maybe we met on Mars, maybe we met by a bin fire floating wayward on a raft between the North and South Islands of Aotearoa as the full moon kept us moving... Either way we three brothers met, and we met to make music to make you sway and dance and swing and sweat. Music to make love to the mind, soul and ears of your sister, your wife, your mistress, your Nanna, to your sweet baby mama. We met to sing of love and trouble, of leisure and life.
Between all three members comes a combination of musical influences from Soul to Roots, Funk to DnB, Gangsta Rap to Hardcore Punk and everything in between. We love, we live and learn by the pleasurable sounds of Motown, Reggae, Bob Marley, Billy Idol, Kora, The Police, AC/DC, Fat Freddy's Drop, Necro, Lisa Gerrard, Soundgarden, low frequencies, high frequencies, hotel farts, Slam's sore neck, the future, those 5,000 people screaming (maybe that was a dream?), bacon crackling, the dude from above, and how many kitchen push-ups have you done to Black Hole Sun today?
