Tender Collection and OV PAIN acknowledge that this event is taking place on the unceded lands of the Wurunderji People of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge their elders past, present, and future.
The genocide of First Peoples is ongoing. No treaty has ever been signed, nor reparations paid. We implore you to Pay The Rent.
Tender Collection is proud to present the release of 'KAURI ISLAND', the new record by OV PAIN.
OV PAIN (Naarm / Aotearoa) is the duo of Renee Barrance and Tim Player.
KAURI ISLAND, their seventh release, is a limited edition of 50 12" vinyl. It will be available for preorder in early March, via the Tender Collection Bandcamp.
The album is the product of an abundance of iso-time in Aotearoa, in the sacred native rainforest of the Waitakere Ranges, and their reoccurring desire to challenge their aesthetic selves. The album is solidified around a live-hardware palette with a distinctively minimalist production style. In the face of the dark march of our Anthropocene, Ov Pain gifts a micro-environment in which some of the animism long at play in the world might come into focus.
Noah Renolds produces body music and ambiance. He has been a multi-instrumentalist in various punk, post-punk, and industrial projects such as Rule of Thirds, Grane & Second Sight. Noah’s productions lean towards an experimentation with off-kilter rhythms & throbbing low frequencies, with dark-electronics as the recognisable through-line. His current focus leans towards the limitations of harmonic counterpoint and complexity using “traditional” electronic hardware.
Their first show since 2019. The trio attempt to play country music but are described as no wave folk & free noise downers.
Tickets are available at the door for $15. Strictly CASH ONLY.
