SoccerPractise “Kaua E Mate Wheke”

Skip hop, trip electro, alt pop, four piece, SoccerPractise concoct a b*tches brew of simmering grooves, spiraled phrasing, and blue note inflections, with new single,“Kaua E Mate Wheke”.

The heady mix of contrasting musical influences, shift like liquid, in layered depths, upon the stuttered and snapped, syncopated beat. Loop, sample and instrument, twist, turn and tiptoe in the sonic melting pot. Metallic shards sound percussive left/right; evocative of the experimental film soundtracks, belonging to 70s B-Movies, such as Tobe Hooper’s infamous flawed masterpiece,‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’(1974).


The willfully unsettling instrumentation is grounded and given soul, by talented lead singer Geneva Alexander-Marsters’ quietly compelling, conversational vocal style and her use of te reo; the warm, open phonetics of the Maori language, bringing a rich, earthy weight to the hazy glissé of the quartet’s expansive musical expression.


Ill-formed awesome, imperfect splendid,“Kaua E Mate Wheke”is an inspiring 3 minute 42 second slice of explorative art pop, extraordinary. Newly signed to Kartel Music Group, the New Zealand based group promise an ongoing musical journey, rich in possibility and improbability.
