Description

So you would have thought that, when it came to recording ‘The Big BW’, the follow-up, main-man, producer and beat-master Mu, born Chris Faiumu, aka DJ Fitchie, and his band-mates would have felt the pressure to live up to the praise heaped on ‘Based on a True Story’ – in the UK, The Observer called their debut “a slow-burn winner” while The Guardian chipped in with “transcendental”.

This upbeat outlook also informs the group's sound and is reflected in the sunny, reggae-infused “Pull The Catch”. According to Toby, “It was written a few years ago when we were travelling in the South Island, staying near Dallas' hometown Rakautara. One morning, a few of the band dragged themselves out of bed and went out before dawn on a fishing boat with Dallas' uncle. When they came back from the ocean they were singing this song. We had a studio set up in a little house at the beach and we recorded the demo that very day.”
