Off the back of their recent run of shows across Aotearoa/New Zealand, our friends in Sunfruits were kind enough to give us the insider goss on what exactly went down when they brought their colourful psychedelia over to the good people of NZ. Come along for the ride!

Lipstick and Leather
Alongside the announcement of their debut album, today we’ve got the pleasure of sharing ‘Lipstick and Leather’ from Melbourne/Naarm punk-rock heavyhitters Blonde Revolver, a self-described “single babe anthem” that adds a new dose of glitz and glamour to their supercharged sound.
