Moon Lander are a band of musicians from Wellington who use voices, drums, guitars and keyboards to play generally up-beat songs in a style some might call psych-pop, about subjects such as love, perceived lack of love, and over-the-counter-drugs.

Members include Anthony Lander, Logan Valentine, Penelope Esplin, and Oli Bridgeman, who have been in tons of bands from Wellington and Dunedin (such as MOSES, The Blue Onesies, French for Rabbits, Grawlixes, Fat Children, The Prophet Hens, The Tweeks).

The Doubtful Sounds are a guitar pop band who live in Auckland and Wellington and sing about books, trains, love, guitars, hope, hills and Elvis. Originally formed in the mists of the 1990s, the Doubtfuls (not to be confused with the Wellington choir with a very similar name) self-released The Pop Album in 2012, A Stones Throw from Happiness in 2014, and contributed tracks to Editions 59 in Germany, Small Bear Records on the Isle of Man, and botanic garden in China.

They're supposed to be finishing a new album for Seattle's Jigsaw Records and hope to try out some new songs at Moon.

Gold Medal Famous is a three-piece genre fluid electropop act founded in Wellington in 2008. Known for their captivating live performances, complete with intense audience interaction and comedic stunts, you might love or hate them, but you won’t forget what you’ve seen.

Signed to Auckland indie label Powertool Records, Gold Medal Famous released their sixth album ‘Activity’ on May 27, 2017.

Gold Medal Famous are prolific recorders with 28 releases available on their own Bandcamp page in addition to their releases on Powertool.

The lead single “We bought a house” is the Kiwi dream of home ownership. The song is a blank canvas with enough space for all your dreams and anxieties about home ownership. It is middle class 'banksta' rap.
