New Zealand isn’t generally known for its exponents of americana yet there are a bunch of great bands doing justice to the genre if you dig deep enough. One of them is Christchurch’s The Unfaithful Ways who are about to head out on some national dates in June. They released their debut album Free Rein to great acclaim last year and you can check out the video for the single Trouble I’m In and a cool live session renditions of Katie My Darling and I Can’t Get Your Cruel Love Off My Mind below.
Friday June 1st – The National, Dunedin (with Hana Fahy and Shakes and Swell)
Sunday June 3rd – Hilltop Tavern, Christchurch to Akaroa Road
Friday June 8th – Lyttelton Festival of Lights
Saturday June 16th – Bodega, Wellington (with John the Baptist and Eb and Sparrow)
