Niche are proud to present US duo Tennyson making their debut in Australia and New Zealand. The mesmerizing duo will touch down in New Zealand on March 23rd playing REC in Auckland, before heading to Sydney and Melbourne to headline Hudson Ballroom and The Toff In Town on the 24th and 25th March respectively.
With a duo like Tennyson, there’s more than meets the eye. Luke and Tess have been playing music together since, basically, forever. Growing up in Edmonton, Alberta with a drummer for a father, there wasn’t much else to do.
And when you listen to Tennyson or watch them perform, you get it. They speak their own language on stage; while soloing on his keyboard Luke triggers a sound effect with the tip of his nose, Tess’s electronic drums shape-shift with each song. It’s as mesmerizing to watch as it is to turn around and look at the audience taking it all in.
And this is probably why anyone who hears or sees Tennyson becomes a fan — from Skrillex to M83 to Questlove. Their melodies are infectious and their ideas are unpredictable. Anything can be a source of inspiration for Tennyson and it’s fascinating to see what they come up with in every new song or show.
