Respected around the world with an underground cult status, New Telepathics is about communication and pushing the boundaries. Drawing from soul, afrobeat, punk, electronica, jazz, dub and the avant-garde, New Telepathics takes you through a journey to protest the suffering and to celebrate the joy.
They were mainstage at Splore 2018 this year and are a powerhouse of intense groove, New Telepathics’ 12 piece line up is fronted by Darryn Harkness (Aotearoa), Nuel Nonsu (Nigeria), Phodiso (Botswana) and Sandy Mill (Aotearoa). With the rhythm and horn section’s featuring some of New Zealand’s finest musicians.
The Sandy Mill Band
Sandy is well known for her generosity as a musician and her breadth of talent and accomplishments. She is as proficient performing sixties pop melodies and harmonies for New Zealand super-troupe, The Bellbirds (with Victoria Kelly, Don McGlashan, Sean Donnelly) as she is improvising, using her voice as an instrument to recreate gregorian monk chants (with producer Flood reworking of Gary Numan’s Cars album), and across layered irregular time signatures in celebrated 90’s avant-garde, free jazz / dance quartet, Spacesuit.
“Basement Jaxx asked me to scream and yell a lot. Not much singing went on in that session, but I learnt another way of approaching the recording process”, she laughs – This multi genre spanning artist has a wealth of New Zealand musician friends and fans that have rallied to shine a light on her incredible talent. Her debut album “A Piece Of Me” contained some incredible material.
