Over the last six years, Tui award-winning band Great North have cemented themselves as one of New Zealand's most accomplished independent acts. On May 9 they release their third full-length album, Up In Smoke, with a show at Devonport's Victoria Theatre before taking off on a national tour.

When the band won Folk Album of the Year at the 2013 New Zealand Music Awards, after being long-listed for a Silver Scroll the previous year, it seemed front-man and songwriter Hayden Donnell had stumbled on the formula to make folk-country resonate with a local audience.

But for their follow-up release, Great North reinvent the formula again. A lush new sound drives this powerful collection of songs. At times it pays homage to classic country, with lonely pedal steel guitars sliding over swaggering rhythms. But just as often it booms and echoes with a choir and swirling guitars.
