What was Maybe Rave changed to OpenSide after they were joined by Possum Plows and signed with CRS Management. Possum was judged to be Auckland University's Songwriter of the Year in 2014, the win bringing her to the wider industry’s attention.
“When I joined this band it felt like coming back to where I started,” says Plows, listing the likes of My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy among her early musical influences. “They were the types of bands I wanted to be in, and OpenSide is along that vein.” (cheers nzmusician for that quote)
They're a combo of musicians who are writing and releasing some fantastic music. Hanging out in California to shoot the music video for this new single and keeping the kiwi DIY vibe very real as you'll hear Chachi talk about in this latest installment of the Chachi Files.
Enjoy and cheers NZOnAir
