Named Best Group at the 2010 Vodafone NZ Music Awards, with four acclaimed albums and two movie soundtracks to their name, as well as recent rave reviews in Europe, The Phoenix Foundation are one of New Zealand’s most innovative and respected bands.

From catchy pop/rock gems, to pulsing epic, psychedelic prog rock, The Phoenix Foundation’s music is truly distinct and fresh. Sun-bleached harmonies, chiming guitars, progressive synthscapes and subliminal rhythms.

Catch them as they arrive back from Europe.
