The self-titled SoccerPractise is the band’s first full-length release, and while it’s a short-lived listen that lacks cohesion as an album, it’s an illuminating debut for the band, and a promising sign of things to come.
Windfall features an electrifying beat and eerie production, while Haere Mai E Tama stands out for singer Geneva Alexander-Marsters’ stunning te reo Maori lyrics and delivery over Thom Burton’s scattergun, left-of-centre production.
The album announces the band as one to watch.
