“..The Bass is a stunning track that proves there are still ways for artists to completely craft a brand new, innovative sound that continues to push boundaries across the indie rock realm.” - The Revue
Auckland-based four piece Racing take rock and roll and inject it with a chemical haze. Racing is made up of long-time collaborators Ed Knowles (vocals) and Sven Pettersen (guitar); two crucial parts to the colossus that was The Checks. Knowles and Pettersen are joined by two other heavy hitters from the Kiwi alternative scene - Daniel Barrett (bass) and Izaak Houston (drums). Racing’s debut album Real Dancing spawned three number ones on the NZ Rock Chart and earned them a nomination for Best Rock Artist at the 2019 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards. From the darkness of the late night dive bars where they cut their teeth, to playing summer festivals across New Zealand, the four members of Racing have come together to create a massive sound that challenges anything from their collective musical past.
