The Kiwi legends are back with a new album, sounding bigger than ever. Record-breaking New Zealand tours, scene-setting appearances at Glastonbury, Big Day Out and Parklife festivals, sold-out performances across Europe, collaborations with Symphony Orchestras, multiple music awards, four EPs and five LPs (three platinum) and an army of fans who return to relive the experience time and time again: the towering achievements of Shapeshifter, the future-shocked soul outfit who hail from Christchurch, New Zealand, were built by a living, breathing band of musicians, with all the sonic possibilities live instrumentation offers.
Shapeshifter by name and by nature, this elemental, electronic soul outfit has morphed from depth-charge bass music, elastic electronic textures and barrelling break-beats to bedrocks of soul, jazz and rave. But never has the name been more apt than on album number five, Delta, their most fearless release yet.
They’ve played several fantastic gigs at Bongo [the most recent occasion was in May 2011], now the guys from New Zealand visit our new home for the first time. There’s no doubt they’ll tear-up the rule-book and lay waste to your ears with some of the most searing, soulful sounds this side of the South Pacific.
