Auckland alt/psych/rock trio The Roulettes make a rare appearance in the capital, playing Meow, Saturday 19th May. They will be joined by Wellington’s post-rock shoe-gazers Kosmo-0.
The Roulettes’ latest release, the 8 track EP Venus Burns, received a rave review on RNZ from Grant Smithies, who nearly ran out of breath and superlatives in the process. He singled out the track 'Dogs' as a fave, calling it a “perfect pop song... raw, hectic and thrilling, an inspired confluence of careering riffs and shiny melody that sticks in your head as tight as any filling.”
So if you love high energy, post-punk, post-pop, clanging, jangling guitar and chiming pop tunes, The Roulettes are quite probably right up your alley.
