London-based musician, Archie Fairhurst aka Romare, is set to make his New Zealand debut in Wellington.

Signed to the respected Ninja Tune label, Romare will play live at the next instalment of Strange Behaviour’s winter series. Romare’s “cut’n’paste” technique is influenced by his namesake, celebrated American artist Romare Bearden, and this collagist approach has garnered the Londoner much critical acclaim, with his debut album Projections voted Album of the Year by DJ magazine, and his more recent Love Songs: Part Two being described by The Skinny, “as a warm piece of percussive and melodic greatness.”

In live performance, this experimental approach comes to the fore, samples and live instruments melded together in the moment, no single show ever quite exactly the same -

Strange Behaviour’s focus is on bringing international acts to Wellington who might otherwise get overlooked. This has included Bicep, Seven Davis Jr., Lefto, Sleep D, Harvey Sutherland and more, as well as promoting local acts such as Chaos in the CBD, Ügly Disco, Mongo Skato and Jet Jaguar.

This latest party sees Strange Behaviour return to Plimmer Steps, and marks the final show in their Autumn/Winter series, which has included Roland Tings, and Butter Sessions.
