Intrigued? Read the blurb:

Ōtautahi based dream pop artist, T. G. Shand is excited to present her latest two-track single release, ‘Little Sieve’. The track is available on all digital platforms and as a 7” mono lathe cut vinyl via Bandcamp.

T.G. ShandA deliciously vibey ditty, ‘Little Sieve’ is an atmospheric take on dream pop, written and produced by Annemarie Duff (ex Melbourne Shoegazers, Miniatures). The track is a pared back beat driven tune with washed out guitars, a spacious hook and minimal, ethereal vocals. “Written as a chronic cynic, trying out dipping my toes into the soup, right at the end of summer in Ōtautahi 2022. Not that it matters what I think about life, but this was a fun wee tune to make. ”

T. G. Shand came to life as Annemarie’s vision in 2018. “After Miniatures disbanded, it’s been a good way to keep the music ideas flowing and learn new skills on both bass and guitar.” Annemarie’s shoegaze roots found influences from the likes of Curve, Chapterhouse, Medicine, and equally from hip-hop heroes such as Pip Millet, Danny Brown, and Little Simz

T.G. ShandAfter a string of successful releases, in late ‘21 T. G. Shand’s live band formed with Lucinda King on bass and backing vocals (Death and the Maiden), Matt Andrews on drums (Jed Parsons), and Jamie Stratton on guitar (Kool Aid). The band was able to sneak in a successful festival debut at Nest Fest 22’ alongside the likes of Glass Vaults, Marlin’s Dreaming, and Kirin J. Callinan, just prior to the change in Covid-19 restrictions that abruptly brought the New Zealand arts sector to a standstill.

Expect to hear a lot more from T. G. Shand in the near future, with a full album on the horizon later in 2022 and an upcoming show supporting Hans Pucket.
