One of New Zealand’s most watched bands, Drax Project, celebrated the release of their single on 27 May. Titled ‘Mad At You’, the single was released with classical soft music. Using a simple acoustic guitar hook, coupled with soft vocals that touch the heart, with a soft fundamental rhythm but musically powerful impact.
“This song is about forgiveness – balancing the good and the bad and choosing to focus on the things that really matter – not being torn apart by the things that don’t matter” – Drax Project
Teamed up with regular collaborator, Grammy award-winning Tom Norris – the single Drax Project produced and wrote is a return to fun, relaxed vibes like ‘Woke Up Late’ and ‘Toto’.
The band secretly collects Ws. New York geek neo-soul group Phony Ppl join fellow New Zealanders, Six60, in a new version of Drax Project’s hit “Catching Feelings” – which has been in America’s Top 40 radio RnB for months. They now have more platinum records in Australia than any other band ever released from New Zealand.
