(Pōneke / Wellington)
HUMMUCIDE formed at jazz school, and planted their roots playing the house party circuit in Pōneke. Playing jazz-influenced music to an indie audience proved to be a point of difference, and soon they were playing sold-out festivals such as Tora Bombora, Welcome to Nowhere and Twisted Frequencies.
They have enjoyed collaborating with local talent, such as guitarist Luca Sturny on their track ‘Exothermic’, and Fynn Hanson who created the artwork for their debut EP - released in October 2020. This has since accrued over 100 thousand streams on Spotify.
They released their second EP in 2021, entitled ‘Decypher’. This work reflects growth in both the band members and the ensemble itself. They look forward to playing more festivals and gigs during the coming year, and recently recorded a full length album which is due for release later in 2022.
