DAILY J, THE LEERS
SUPPORT FROM MAC MYLO
The Leers are a New Zealand four piece exploring the depths of Indie Rock & Roll, with subtle pickings of psychedelia and a healthy obsession for dynamic structure.
Hailing from the sunny beach town of Mt Maunganui, these childhood friends pour their experience as longtime musicians into what has been described as “as Alt-Junkies wet dream”.
Raised by the beach and by the early rumbles of bands such as Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Foals, Bombay Bicycle Club, and countless other Indie hay-day artists, The Leers continue on their musical journey of exploration with the tempered and relaxed attitude and style that can only be found by inhabitants of the seaside.
Armed with swelling build-ups, catchy guitar pop melody, dynamically engaging structure and head bobbing riffs, The Leers are best enjoyed live, up close & personal
Daily J is comprised of the Paul brothers and their good friend Rick. Originally from small town South Island, the trio packed their eclectic sensibilities into a suitcase and relocated to Auckland, here they met Rick.
It’s not that Daily J defy genres as much as they let the music serve their emotions, expressing themselves through indie/psych learnings, and often pulling out the saxophone when the mood calls.
It’s been nearly a decade of good times - throwing parties, hunting new tunes, hosting a weekly radio show, making music and spinning tunes to get the people going!
Out of love for the NZ music industry and a feeling that there was no platform for up and coming local artists, Mac created ‘Merci Motel’ - a submission based, monthly live music showcase, that profiles local artists that are far too good to be locked in their bedroom.
