Rising indie rockers and band of brothers Daily J have announced a special one-off show at Auckland’s Tuning Fork on Friday August 14 to celebrate the release of their upcoming single ‘Rocket’ with support from Wellington’s Nicholas Franchise.
Hailing from the deep-rooted back lands of Blenheim, now-Auckland-based Daily J have constructed their own unique sound, offering blissful blends of warm swirling melodies, dynamic basslines and a subtle pop electronica influence.
The talented band of brothers consists of Jayden on vocals/guitar, Jesse on sax/keys, Jonny on bass, plus their buddies Cody on lead guitar and Rick on drums. In 2017 they released their debut EP ‘The Other Side’, while 2019 brought crowd favourites ‘Black Lagoon' and ‘Left Me Like Summer’. They are currently working on their debut album to be released in October, with the first single, 'Rocket', being released in early August ahead of the show.
Pop-raunch-rock act Nicholas Franchise will join in support duties. Despite the name they are in fact a four-piece band, and released their debut album in 2018. With a history spanning from formation in Dunedin, relocating to the USA and then back again, the band will be travelling up from their current base in Wellington for this special show.
