Wellington rock band Underwire have been around since 2010, formed in the blend of Pixies and Clash tribute band members who turned their on-stage chemistry to their own music. Drawing on this experience they gained a reputation for high-energy performances and an  irrepressible joy in their craft.

Re-emerging in 2020, with refreshed line-up and new energy, Underwire have been writing together for the last three years and have begun releasing a stream of punchy, distinctive songs recorded at Massey University School of Music in 2021, and re-mastered by production legend Scott Seabright (Finn Brothers, Alien Weaponry, Mumford & Sons). In contrast to the wall of sound of their first single ‘Gravity’ released in May 2023, Underwire’s new single ‘Calling Out’ is an evocative post-punk tale of loss and dissolution, a mannered and disquieting outline of a relationship falling apart. So far they’ve been attracting 5 star reviews, been playlisted on a number of UK indie radio shows (eg Northern Quarter Radio ‘Big Fat Indie Show’), and are enjoying access to a wider audience.  Watch for more Underwire releases over the remainder of 2023, and further recordings are scheduled for late 2023 with Scott Seabright at the helm.
