A strong DIY vibe runs through theSlacks’ production efforts – it’s an ethos that’s related to rock n roll and punk (maybe once removed). The result is a rough polish that is theSlacks’ stock in trade.
The sound of the band has been described as folk-rock slapped about the face by country and the blues with a dusting of Irish-ska.

Self-funded and self-motivated, theSlacks have defied their own millstone of a name and produced two full-length albums, an EP, four music videos and countless tours and dance- offs.

Big Aroha is the upcoming single by theSlacks. Big Aroha germinated in Marky’s school years after a discussion he had waiting for the bus outside the Inglewood dairy. It was a conversation that stayed with him over the years until coalescing into song several months ago. Peppered with Te Reo and celebrating strong community ties and deep roots, Big Aroha is a nod to Poi E and a modern Taranaki response to our times.

In early December, theSlacks are embarking on a North Island tour to promote the Big Aroha single and video release. The mini-tour crisscrosses the Island from Auckland down to Wellington; Taranaki across to Gizzy - a pagan genuflection of AotearoaNZ rock.

Bringing a fresh, new batch of songs, theSlacks will also be revisiting their classic album Suppressed Inventions and last year’s album release, Welcome To The Rolling Vibe for a full-bodied show with serious legs.
