Auckland-based tropicalia groove maestros Racing are back on the road this summer for an onslaught of shows across the nation. and are being joined by blues rock 60s & 70s guitar wranglers Mini Simmons for selected dates.

They emerge fresh from the studio where they are working on a second full length album due for release in 2020, and a follow up to 2019’s Real Dancing which featured the singles Motel Pool, Run Wild, The Bass and others.

The band – who are finalists for best rock artist in the 2019 New Zealand Music Awards – take rock and roll and inject it with a chemical haze so potent the listener is left both pleased and punished. Once likened to “the thoughts of a crocodile in flood season”, Racing crafts a swirling sea of groove and hypnosis into rock anthems drenched in weird tropical dance music.
