A gig which is coming to Tauranga soon, is set to bring a night full of music with an edge.
The Jam Factory at the Incubator Creative Hub is bringing you Those Lethals.
Director Simone Anderson says the show is one you can't miss.
"Drawing inspiration from artists like Lianne La Havas, Lake Street Dive, and Alabama Shakes, their melodic hooks are clean and catchy from first listen, but the carefully crafted layers of electric guitar, trumpet, and double bass give their sound an inventiveness which plays wild or subdued in equal measure.
"Lyrically, the style varies between the poetic, fiery disdain, and candid melancholy. There are stories of serious hits to the heart and head, but the overall tone of adventure and of growing up prevails."
The now five-piece band, began as a duo when vocalist Elizabeth Cameron and guitarist Lane Twigden, were put in touch on a musical blind date, says Simone.
"Cameron, having spent the past three years writing and performing foot-stomping Americana music with expats in South Korea, returned home ready to head in a new musical direction.
"Initially, their joint songwriting was the meeting point between this and Twigden's dreamy acoustic folk style. The transition to electric guitar and the introduction of a full band, brought in drummer Raj Bakker, double-bassist Tim Shacklock, and trumpet player Guy Harrison to round out their unique set up."
You can expect a very special show as those lethals return to Tauranga, this time backed by talented local Ash Laforteza With a soulful take on rhythm and blues, Ash Laforteza is sure to get you grooving with original songs and a spicy fresh cover or two.
The band will perform at The Incubator Creative Hub on April 27 at 7pm.
