Hamilton News - - FRONT PAGE - Jesse Wood Win­tec jour­nal­ism stu­dent

New Zealand’s own in­die elec­tro pop singer Theia will be per­form­ing at Hamil­ton’s Ni­vara Lounge on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 13.

She will be per­form­ing her lat­est sin­gles, Bye Bye and Bad Idea along with a se­lec­tion of un­re­leased ma­te­rial. Fans have the chance to be among the first in the world to hear her new tracks.

The show will be opened by lo­cal band Look­ing for Alaska.

Hav­ing per­formed at fes­ti­vals such as Rhythm & Vines and Bay Dreams, Theia is be­com­ing well known in New Zealand.

Per­form­ing at small and cozy venues with just a two-piece band, fans will be able to get up close with the Christchurch artist.

“I re­ally wanted to be able to per­form in more in­ti­mate set­tings and get closer to them,” Theia said.

“You re­ally do vibe off hav­ing a big crowd, but it’s nice to per­form in smaller spa­ces.”

She loves ev­ery as­pect of what she does, but her favourite part is be­ing able to share her work with other peo­ple.

“I find so much joy and ther­apy in writ­ing and per­form­ing.

“To see them con­nect and feel the lyrics and see­ing that on their faces,” she said.

“I feel like it’s my pur­pose.” She will be per­form­ing at Ante So­cial in Auck­land on Septem­ber 12 and Palmer­ston North’s The Stom­ach on Fri­day Septem­ber 14.
