'Yeah Nah' theSlacks have a new single

Light hearted, fun and irreverent 'Yeah Nah' is a follow up to theSlacks' previous single 'Big Aroha'.

The song 'Yeah Nah' takes a handful of well used New Zealand phrases in English and Te Reo to  show the way we as kiwis communicate.

The song also hints at a coming change in our thinking and culture that is overdue and will be for the good. It  builds on the concept of "Kiwitanga" which is a loose term coined to paint a picture of what the unification of our Bicultural roots might look and sound like in a future Aotearoa. 

The modus operandi for any Slacks video is to get people together, and turn the day into something of a celebration that tends to run twice as long as the video shoot itself.

Shot on Waitangi Day, the sun was smiling down on the band, cold bevvies in hand and some spare ribs for the BBQ. Games of home-grown beach cricket and touch rugby as well as an early evening performance on the deck of the New Plymouth Yacht Club, all made it into the final cut.

theSlacks were conceived at the tail end of the grunge-y 1990’s and the focus was firmly on having a good time and not taking the band too seriously. 

'Yeah Nah' is available now from all good digital outlets.
