MOLLY PAYTON ANNOUNCES THE PORCUPINE TOUR


AUCKLAND, Nov 16, 2019  UK-based, New Zealand-born Molly Payton today announces the Porcupine Tour. The fast-rising indie talent kicks off proceedings on Thursday 18 February at Auckland’s Whammy Bar, before visiting Lyttelton’s Wunderbar on Friday 19 February before rounding out the set of Summer shows at Wellington’s Moon on Saturday 20 February. 


Molly Payton’s first offering came in the form debut EP Mess, released in early 2020 and co-produced with Dirty Hit signee Oscar Lang. Whilst Mess cast a reflective gaze to her teenage years, new EP Porcupine emerges as bigger, fuller and louder, a reflection of Molly’s changing tastes as she works with and meets new people. “I’ve definitely gravitated towards a heavier, very ‘90s [sound],” she notes. “I love slacker bands like Happyness and big, noisy bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pavement and Nirvana.” While she will always want meaning in her songs, she also wants to “make music that people can jump around to”. 


Recorded in a heatwave and written to the backdrop of Molly’s first summer post-high school, Porcupine also draws from Molly’s sonic influences - combining soaring vocals reminiscent of indie darlings like Big Thief or Julia Jacklin with the energetic guitar-driven sonics and witty lyricism of contemporaries such as Snail Mail and Beabadoobee. Molly’s sound emerges unique to her, embracing the roots and influences of her New Zealand upbringing, yet grounding itself in the youthfulness and enthusiasm of navigating young adulthood in her new London setting.          With her evocative lyricism, ever-expanding sound, and wry humour as a fixture Porcupine is both a snapshot and introduction to the world of Molly Payton, a bold new talent and most welcome arrival to the scene. 


Tickets for all shows go on sale at 1PM local time on Thursday 19th November.
