I could give you so many reasons why I want to go back to New Zealand and I just found out about another one: I don’t know anything about the kiwi music scene. The Auckland based grunge pop band Popstrangers are proof enough to me, there has to be more than the music by Don McGlashan and Julia Deans or bands like The Ladykillers. For garage rock loving starters like me Popstrangers are the perfect first pick to get sucked into New Zealand’s alternative rock scene. They’ve just hit NZ’s record stores with their debut album Antipodes that you can stream in full below the video for their single “What Else Could They Do?“.
Stream in full, Popstrangers’ debut album Antipodes, out now via Carpark Records.
