Arguably one of the most prolific, yet enduringly enigmatic artists of our time, Mount Eerie’s Phil Elverum is set to bring his devastating, sometimes beautiful, always incredible catalogue of songs all the way from his home in America’s Pacific northwest back to little old Aotearoa.
This time, there’s a twist. While Mount Eerie’s previous visits have been stark solo performances, where a pin dropping to the carpet would interrupt the ambience, this time Elverum will be joined by Black Belt Eagle Scout as his backing band, ensuring these shows will be loud, while remaining as intense and mystical as ever.
With a new album hinted at, and a discography to draw on that stretches all the way back to the late 90s with his previous incarnation The Microphones, you can be sure that these shows will have something for every kind of fan.
In support, Black Belt Eagle Scout will also be performing their own opening set. This will be songwriter Katherine Paul’s first set of shows in New Zealand, and audiences are in for a treat. To quote She Shreds Magazine: “If you can imagine all of the best things that the Pacific Northwest has brought us—Mount Eerie, Grunge, Sleater-Kinney, The Girls Rock Camp, and lush mountain ranges—reimagined and told through the perspective of an Indigenous Swinomish/Iñupiaq woman; if you can imagine the magic that would bring to your life, then you can imagine Black Belt Eagle Scout.”
Touring off the back of their latest album The Land, The Water, The Sky, Black Belt Eagle Scout make for a powerful double bill for these three shows.
