Listen to They Don't Want

Developing their own sound and twist on modern hip hop, psychedelic and soul Electric Wire Hustle’s unique sound challenges
genre boundaries and preconceptions.The music of New Zealand’s EWH reaches forward while referencing key points of music’s past. Thick drums and percussion layered with synth lines, hints of the Fender Rhodes and nylon stringed guitars have your neck snapping while your ears crane to the evocative vocals of Mara TK.

Since forming in 2007 EWH have experienced an outstanding response to their music. Their strong live show has seen them perform all over the world and at notable events such as the UK’s Glastonbury, The Big Chill and Barcelona’s Sonar festival. Last year
EWH were noted as the “CMJ Highlight” by The Revivalist / Okayplayer after their performance at the New York festival as part
of their debut U.S. tour.

Their debut self titled album released internationally on BBE Records and Every Waking Hour in New Zealand has received love from many of the world’s top Djs and selectors including; BBC Radio 1 Djs Benji B who selected the track ‘Chaser’ as a top track of 2009 and Gilles Peterson who selected the track ‘They Don’t Want’ as a top track of 2009 and featured it as the opening track on his infamous Brownswood Compilation – Bubblers 5.
