MUZAI Records are pleased to announce an Auckland show from Brisbane experimental-pop group Old Growth Cola, as part of their 2012 New Zealand Tour.

Old Growth Cola are a Brisbane based pysch pop band who are touring Australia and New Zealand in February of 2012. Accompanying this tour is the release of an untitled 7”, limited to a pressing of 60 copies. The 7” was recorded in November of 2011 and cut to polycarbonate in New Zealand by Peter King. This is Old Growth Cola’s second release since the self release of an EP 2010; it is their first release with the current line up.

Having formed in September of 2010, the band has played shows in Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The current tour will see them adding Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland to that list.

The five piece band is includes Lewis O’Leary, Henry Mills, Marek Rygielski, Andrew Boyd and Adam Nicoll. Their sound has been described as a free approach to experimentation taking place over the top of a simplistic “carpet” of pop songs. While instrumentation in the group includes the standard vocals, guitar, bass and drums, live performances also make use of home made electronics as well as mixer feedback, prepared instrumentation and extended vocal techniques.

"Old Growth Cola combine some interesting musical elements – acoustic guitar, bass and drums as per your common-or-garden folk-rock trio, but the quintet instead get in touch with their inner Spacemen 3 through a lead guitarist who doesn’t play so much as he coaxes all manner of deep space skree from his six string, and a chap manning a table of effects pedals and other sonic manipulation gizmos."
