Bio

Regularly described as crazy, Spacifix are a live act like no other with incredible energy as well as a finesse for putting on a sonically and visually entertaining show. Spacifix started their careers as a group of enthusiastic high school students, ranging in age from 13 to 18 four years ago, when they entered the Smoke Free Pacifika Beats national band competition and won. Since then, the band have been performing their blend of funk, pop, reggae, and rock all over New Zealand. ‘‘All of us grew up listening to music, but we all have different tastes which we have managed to fit really nicely together, with all of our musical influences and aspirations contributing to the band’s sound.’’ Spacifix spent several years writing songs and building a fan base in Auckland before releasing their debut album Much Love in 2006. The year was a successful one for the band, who were commissioned by World Vision to write and record the 2006 40-Hour Famine soundtrack, Spread da Word. The music video of their hit single Sunshine Day won a prestigious Telly Award, which honours video and film productions from around the world, in Los Angeles, and the band have two Pacific Music Awards and one Tui (New Zealand Music Industry Award) under their belts already. The band’s early success and trip to Los Angeles were filmed for a nine-episode series aired on New Zealand Television called Henderson to Hollywood. The show won the Air New Zealand 2007 Screen Award for best reality series. With international acclaim and performances with artists like UB40, Shaggy and Christina Aguilera under their collective belt, the band is looking to have more of a presence in both the New Zealand and Australian markets. Spacifix have also toured internationally, playing shows in Holland (where they played a show to a crowd of around 40,000), London, the islands of Tonga and Vanuatu, and more recently the USA. Currently based in Brisbane, Spacifix have been playing numerous festivals around Australia including Woodford Folk Festival, Island Vibes and more.

Love this song guys. It gets stuck in my head when I'm at work regularly, and it's such an awesome chilled out song to work to.
