DARTZ - Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One (Pre-Order)
The Band From Wellington, New Zealand is back; DARTZ have announced their second full-length album Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One, to be released on Friday 1 March 2024 via Flying Nun Records.
DARTZ comprises Danz (vocals), Clark Mathews (bass), Crispy (guitar), and Rollyz (drums) - four best mates from Wellington who have charmed listeners with their scrappy and relatable brand of garage rock, and won an army of diehard fans for their energetic live performances and infectious on-stage chemistry. Those same fans took DARTZ’s debut album The Band From Wellington, New Zealand to #1 on the NZ Album Charts upon release in 2022.
Recorded with producer James Goldsmith in Wellington, DARTZ’s follow-up effort Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One is a showcase of the band’s hard-rocking and party-starting energy, channelled into ten of their most anthemic tracks yet.
Over a replayable 29 minutes, Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One sees DARTZ effortlessly weave between a wide range of topics, offering up small-town New Zealand parables (Bush Weed, Learning To Drive With Dad) alongside jabs at classic DARTZ villains like landlords and property developers (Flat Inspection, Paradise) and of course, advice on the pressing issue of when to crack open a beer (when you’ve Earned The Thirst and Golden Hour hits on a Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One?).
