Swerve City + Curly’s Jewels / North Island Tour / The Mount – Voodoo Lounge, Tauranga

SWERVE CITY and CURLYS JEWELS are joining forces for a headlining tour of the North Island this winter, with help from some of New Zealand’s top indie rock bands.

After playing two capacity shows in their hometown over the past 6 months, SWERVE CITY is taking their captivating and energetic show on the road.

The new single “Moving Pictures” explores the inner world filtered by the effect of anxiety and depression, where negative thought patterns feel like endless labyrinths from which there is no escape. Introspective lyrics emerge from an explosion of wall sound, as SWERVE CITY continues to unveil and develop its contribution to the New Zealand rock scene.

CURLYS JEWELS are a rock band from Wellington NZ. Their sound is grungy yet powerfully emotive, pinned with soaring vocals, dark guitar undertones and a punchy rhythm section. Charismatic, colorful and instantly likeable singer Jel Pollock draws listeners in with her delightfully unique stage presence and sensational vocal range. Aaron Ludlow (guitar), Andy van der Heyden (bass), and Corey Bell (drums) provide the energetic groundwork complimenting Jel, with all members lighting up the stage. They have a large and fiercely loyal fan base supporting them across New Zealand and beyond.

The band have released a number of records over the years with 3 singles and 2 EPs charting in New Zealand’s Official Top 40. Their singles have also been played on mainstream and independent rock stations in New Zealand. The last 3 singles from Curlys Jewels were recorded at Roundhead Studios with legendary producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) and mixed by Clint Murphy (Devilskin)

Special Guests BONES INC and APOLLO STEAM TRAIN represent two of New Zealand’s finest rock bands residing at The Mount.

BONES INC. is a riff-heavy trio, made for the stage, while Brendan Mccarthy’s APOLLO STEAMTRAIN promises an intimate acoustic performance, full of well-crafted, emotionally performed songs and lyrics.
