Hamilton band DateMonthYear is joining forces with local bands Rubita and Mouse to provide a smorgasbord of musical entertainment at a gig at Nivara Lounge this month.
The three bands will perform at Nivara Lounge on Victoria Street on May 27, at 8pm.
DateMonthYear band founder Trevor Faville said the three bands know each other well through the local music scene and they each bring a variety of tuneful talent to their Nivara Lounge performance.
“The bands’ sounds are quite different and that was quite deliberate, so each band has a different flavour and that’s one of the goals for the gig. Rather than having a whole lot of bands of the same type, it’s quite a smorgasbord this way,” Faville said.
Faville and fellow DateMonthYear members Emma Koretz, Brooke Baker, Hayely Schwass and Tyler Leet are working on their second single called March, to be released soon from their upcoming album.
Shunning traditional band formats, DateMonthYear’s structure means that “commitment is defined by contribution” with allowance for new ideas and influence.
Faville describes their music as pop melodies, rock dynamics and a movie cinematic atmosphere. “That’s kind of the best description. Technically it’s rock music, but it’s a little bit more than that,” Faville said.
The band has embraced the unconventional with their single Numbers released as a video only recently as a teaser of what’s to come from their album. The hard-hitting lyrics reflect on today’s society and how people’s lives revolve around numbers.
The Numbers video, which can be found on DateMonthYear’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, has done well online and has been widely played.
The idea behind the song Numbers is that for a lot of people, numbers define everything – the numbers of your mortgage or rent, income, supermarket shopping and simply hoping that you have enough to pay for groceries and bills.
Tickets to DateMonthYear, Rubita and Mouse’s gig at Nivara Lounge can be purchased at the door on the night for $10 per person. Further details of the gig can be found on DateMonthYear’s Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/DMYNZ/
