Fat Freddy’s Drop curate the perfect Aussie vs Kiwi party playlist for your Friday pre-drinks

We are exactly a month out from the much anticipated release of the brand new Fat Freddy’s Drop record, Bays, and we are super excited. Well known as being a ludicrously fun party band, the new album sees the band traversing a plethora of vibrant musical landscapes, from slow burning funk to jazz-infused techno and hazy reggae. Before the album drops however, we thought we’d get their two cents on some Aussie and Kiwi bands that are ticking the boxes for them.
