Carving out a name for themselves within the local and international post punk music scenes as the youngest band to perform at Australasia's most iconic festival St Jerome’s Laneway, as well as creating the Auckland's coolest all-ages festival AGEOLD, the boys have extensively toured NZ as headliners, as well as notching up opening slots for big international acts including Mac Demarco, Japandroids, Viet Cong and METZ. Having recently completed a 15 date NZ/AUS tour, selling out four shows in NZ in support of their latest single ‘Tongue’, which reached #3 on the NZ Alternative charts, while their first two EPs garnered attention and praised from the likes of Noisey, Tone Deaf, Impose Magazine, Sniffers, and The Wireless.
Named as one of the Top 8 Kiwi guitar bands by Impose Magazine, which praised them for their “old-fashioned rock and roll cut from the same cloth as Polvo and Fugazi – embedded with a hint of classic kiwi jangle. A post-punk band on the rise, with the confidence and skill to make it big.”
Yukon Era's songs are loud and melodic, quiet and chaotic. The band have created a modern and polished sound which they deliver via stubborn-ly classic garage rock. In the flesh Yukon Era's greatest asset might the bands ability to convey their well crafted tunes via a set brimming with youthful confidence to form something truly endearing, energetic and exciting.
