Hailing from Wellington, Prizegiving recently wrapped up their first Australian tour alongside fellow New Zealanders Carb on Carb. With a run of shows that saw the band play both full and stripped-back sets, it was pure joy to see the dynamics of their sound and their unwavering enthusiasm. There is something truly special about the full band vocal arrangements and delicate dance between guitars and synth, that when teamed with light hearted lyricism makes for beautifully balanced, unpretentious emo-pop.

We caught up with Prizegiving at the start of their tour and filmed two songs with the band and their temporary replacement drummer Stevie (who made up in cuteness what she lacked in actual drumming ability and presence of opposable thumbs).
