Lo­cal group has No 1 iTunes hit

Stratford Press - - Puzzle Page! -

New Ply­mouth band La­conic Ze­phyr’s new sin­gle has hit num­ber one on the New Zealand iTunes rock chart.

It is the se­cond time one of the band’s songs has got to the top place on iTunes this year. The band’s first sin­gle Cools You Down achieved the same re­sult ear­lier in the year, which makes the whole thing pretty in­cred­i­ble, says lead vo­cal­ist and bass gui­tarist Joss Bines.

“Wow — it was truly amaz­ing we were all ab­so­lutely stoked with this mas­sive achieve­ment.”

Joss says the new sin­gle, Seek A New Day, took 15 min­utes to write. It was recorded in Taranaki at Bam­boo Stu­dios, pro­duced by Mphatic and mas­tered by Bri­ton Jon Ast­ley who has pro­duced work for Queen, Blondie, The Who and Eric Clap­ton.

Joss — who formed the band — has had a long ca­reer in the in­dus­try and used to play in a band that sup­ported acts like DD Smash and the Ex­po­nents. She has al­ways been pas­sion­ate about mu­sic, work­ing for mu­sic com­pa­nies do­ing sales and mar­ket­ing. Band mem­bers in­clude Kama Antrobus (per­cus­sion/back­ing vo­cals) Glenn Smith (drums) Ja­son Olsson (gui­tar) Joe Cald­well (key­board ) and Mark Bines (gui­tar). La­conic Ze­phyr head to the stu­dio in Oc­to­ber to record their sin­gle Where I Came From.
