Similar to the migrating patterns of the bar-tailed Godwit - or KuaKua - Marlin’s Dreaming will leave its prickly nest in December to embark on a national summer tour, visiting Aotearoa’s agrarian towns and middling cities.
The tour marks the celebration of its new full length LP, Quotidian, recorded at Roundhead Studios and set to be released in 2020. After recently playing alongside musical heavyweights, Kirin J Callinan and The Chills, Marlin’s Dreaming continues to take significant strides in the local scene.
From gliding pop ballads, to grungy post-punk, Marlin’s Dreaming have been continually striving to diversify their sound and improve their live performances.
The band will travel together in a white middle-class rental van, enjoying each others company, playing silly games and talking emphatically about their holidays spent apart.
Although Marlin’s Dreaming is technically, a band. The frontman, Semisi Maiai, will resume control over pretty much everything on tour, including the cooking, which is likely to be comprised of little home made sandwiches and sweeties for the whole entourage to enjoy, while the sun pelts down and the waves thunder into the shores of our great coastlines.
