About the track:

Originally written as a set closer, “Cut to the Chase” is an unleashing of pent up frustrations with a wall of noise. Bursting out of the gates with angular stabs, bruising drums and call and response shouts, it eventually collapses in on itself for an extended noisy finale.

About us:

The music that we make is great for fans of: Mourn, Drahla, IDLES

REPAIRS play high-tempo, loud, emotional music together for fun. We are a band, but first and foremost we are friends. We are also three people, but only two of us are married to each other.

We all used to perform variations of pitch, tone and rhythm with other people under different names – some too embarrassing to mention, and some that aren’t – but in the interest of fairness, we won’t mention any of them here. We are situated in a city called Auckland, which is itself situated in a country called New Zealand. This informs the music we make, but nationalism is still stupid. One of the band is Scottish, of which she is very proud in spite of the previous sentence. Our contradictions define us.

We love playing live shows and are lucky to have played lots of gigs with many good friends. Recordings are less numerous with a handful of singles to date, but 2020 will see a marked increase in the lead up to our debut album. 

REPAIRS are: Nicola (bass), James (drums) and Martin (guitar)
