Most of the times indie rock bands come from UK or Usa, yet very far-away land as New Zealand hide some very good groups as, for example, the Phoenix Foundation .
This six-piece band (with changes in the line-up during past years) was formed in Wellington more than 13 years ago and yes, for people who are MacGyver- addicted, their name comes from the non profit organization MacGyver joined in the second series!
So far, they have released 4 albums and, the thing I like very much is that you never get bored listening to them because they travel in the music sound experience with the synth, trying to find new different tunes or to play other instruments. And maybe that’s why they won in September so many awards: Best Engineer, Best Producer and last but not least Best Cover (aside the Best Album and Single of the year in New Zealand).
Good news, Good News! They’re gonna tour Europe early in 2011, yet not Italy! So take the chance to discover another town in Europe and a very good band!
