SODA BOYZ & Potential announce New Zealand tour!

Wednesday 07 December 2022

Te Papaioea's SODA BOYZ are teaming up with self-described "weirdo dark-pop synth-wave plus-a-sax three-piece operating on stolen Gadigal and Wangal land (Sydney)" Potential for a four date summer jaunt across Te Ika-a-Māui this coming February. Launching their third album in just over three years Normal on 6th January, the Australian-based trio of alisha, dean and nick have just dropped pulsing new single 'Chronic Gains', which you can listen to below. On the relative down low since the release of their 2020 opus Farewell Spit via Papaiti Records (plus a follow-up cover of a tune by San José slowcore legends Duster), SODA BOYZ will be "touring new material from their forthcoming new release". Catch both groups with special guests galore at the following dates
