From the first chord… to the last, Newtown-based, Papaiti-associated coffee-punks Prizegiving deliver honest and catchy emo pop. Their performances are marred with a positive energy telling of the day which they’ve clearly taken often off work for the show. After playing at their own stay-true-young-emo stage last year, Prizegiving are very pleased to be joining the official lineup for Newtown Festival 2017.
"kings and queen of nz emo pop "
"Their sound sits somewhere between emo, pop-punk and indie rock - but whatever you call it, people are digging it. The songs are packed with layered melodies and catchy hooks, while the lyrics are honest and scattered with dry humour. "
