London based NZ artist, Blair Jollands is returning to his hometown Aotearoa in January to perform songs from his acclaimed recent album 7 Blood.
7 Blood received high praise at home and abroad with Elsewhere's Graham Reid referring to his current collection of songs as "Crackers all, and they'll hook you in."
Having won the admiration of both David Bowie & Boy George (who released Blair's previous material under the name El Hula on his More Protein label), Jollands has received kudos from the likes of NME, Guardian, Uncut, ArtRocker and more.
Jollands has been compared vocally to Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright & Scott Walker, his music communicating a paradoxical mix of melancholia and optimism that draws the listener in.
Jollands will play three shows in New Zealand, starting in Auckland on January 18 and making his way south to Wellington by way of Napier. Tickets are now available from www.undertheradar.co.nz.
