molly and the chromatics
PLAYS: 31 dec
STAGE: garden stage
Prior to the release of their debut EP Straight Lines in 2016, M+TC found their feet in the Auckland music scene as an exciting, dynamic and highly danceable act. Their sound is one that demands to be heard live. Having brought in the New Year with a set at Rhythm & Vines 2016/17, the band has continued to sell out shows in the North Island: from Whangarei to Wellington and in some of Auckland’s top music venues.
The band is well toured and have established a solid fan base throughout NZ. M+TC’s collective passion for Jazz, Funk, Soul, Electronica and Hip Hop & RnB is evident in the group’s sound. Throw in a two part horns section that joins the band for live performance and you’ve got a recipe for a good time. Equal parts meticulous, rhythmic and experimental, their music cannot be easily classified or labelled, but fused with Molly’s smoky, soulful vocals the result is captivating. Think Tom Misch, Hollie Smith, Hiatus Kaiyote, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Erykah Badu as inspiration for the band’s tunes. With fresh music from their upcoming EP, Molly + The Chromatics is set for an exciting show at this year’s RnV.
