Split Enz is New Zealand’s most iconic band of all time — in my view — because they successfully took their Kiwi flavour to the world at a time when that was pretty much unheard of. While their sound could be tagged as “80’s pop” they have a distinctive take on the era which translates very well to today.
I’ve just heard the news that Miriam Clancy has another album coming out a little later this year. What better time to remind myself of the sheer joy to be had from her second album — released nine and a half years ago (wow!).
