Papaiti Records are stoked to announce the very first NZ tour from Australia’s scintillating Requin. The art-pop band will play 7 dates across both islands in early March.
Joined in Auckland by tour dogs Carb on Carb, emos Hospital Sports, Chewy Gum who just released a sick single Never See Your Face and the first Tāmaki show from Keeva.
Requin have been performing and writing together in Brisbane, Australia for 4 years. They found their name in the malfunctioning television of a local fish and chip shop. The screen was caught uncontrollably switching between Australian TV quiz ‘Deal or no Deal’ and a French news channel reporting a shark attack (un attaque de requin). The same frenetic tension and release can be heard in their intricate, hanging-on-every-word performances.
Some of the band’s accolades include spending several weeks on 4ZZZ's Top 20 with their debut EP The Noisy Miners Swoop Him and being ranked 5th Artist of the Year and 3rd Australian Artist Live Performance Of The Year by theMusic.com.au.
