Half/Time (New Zealand)

HALF/TIME is a Māori centred post-punk band from Aotearoa (New Zealand) featuring Wairehu Grant on guitar and vocals, Cee on bass and Ciara Bernstein on drums. Together they perform emotionally charged songs addressing decolonisation, structural racism and cultural resilience. Their music intertwines lyrics in English and te reo Māori (the Māori language) with heavy riffs and driving rhythms. Following on from their self-titled EP in 2021, their upcoming EP, ‘Scary Stories to Tell When You’re Dark’ is set for release in March 2023. Just in time to share their latest body of work while on tour in the United Kingdom.
