It’s tough to find something unique these days.
And it’s rare to find a band that plays with such virtuosity whilst nailing hooks, melody and lyrics at the same time.
And let’s just not even start on their additional performance talents...
Balu Brigada are a band of three brothers and a great mate. Playing high energy alt- rock with hip hop beats and pop hooks to birth an eccentric amalgamation of their favourite genres. Their influences range from from Tame Impala to Tyler the Creator, and it’s their ability to harmoniously blend such contrasting styles together, that sets them apart.
With just a handful of releases under their belts, the boys have been making waves in their home country of NZ – garnering radio, online and Spotify support as well as an enthusiastic and rabid fan base.
Having supported NZ wunderkind, Thomston, Aussie pop maverick, E^ST and a drop dead amazing set at RNV, the band have more recently been busy living and recording new material in Brooklyn, NYC.
‘The pop potential of their songwriting has only continued to expand. They’ve got a summer hit on their hands here.' – Sniffers, 2017
'Musically ‘Nightshift’ is a beautiful mould between Pharrell and MGMT, with interesting vocal lines, a solid drive, and infectious groove. The production is about as crisp as a morning in the middle of July, showing off the instrumentation and compositional talents that Balu Brigada are building a name for.' – ZM RADIO. 2018
‘Balu Brigada are back, and once again showing us their outstanding ability to make un- deniable bangers’ – Sniffers, 2018.
