band bio

Shimmering Subversive Singalongs that are at once dire and light-hearted, weighted perfectly for a world stitched up and coming apart at the seams. 

Folk-Rock-Pop that delivers a poignant social commentary powered by an unselfish desire to entertain. 

Best known for antipodean-pop hits, Big Aroha and Yeah Nah, theSlacks are all over the folk-pop-rock spectrum, delivering danceable rhythms, joyful indie-pop and a refreshingly real vibe that resonates with questing minds in these testing times.


Scotty Armstrong, his brother and Slacks' lead guitarist, Mark, bassist Blake Gibson and drummer Zane Greig have a collection of sometimes gentle, sometimes poppy, sometimes rocking, songs and they really give their all on stage - even at a lunchtime show.” - Andrew Owen
