Album of the Week: The Black Seeds 'Love & Fire'

ALBUM OF THE WEEK: The Black Seeds ‘Love & Fire’

Aotearoa’s favourite octet are back with their seventh studio album, Love & Fire. Starting life as a series of jams at hometown Wellington studio The Surgery, Covid forced a pivot to a different tack. Lead vocalist Barnaby Weir says, “Ideally, each member sent in one or two takes of what they were feeling they wanted to add to the track, and this worked well. In some ways – without being together gave the lads that creative mind space to lay down something meaningful.” And it must have turned out pretty fantastic, because it’s our Album of the Week.

We’ll be giving away copies all week on 95bFM Drive from June 13th, so keep your bCard handy and stay tuned for your cue to enter. Plus, make sure you catch The Black Seeds LIVE for their national tour in half a decade, playing Thursday 30 June at The Powerstation. Grab your tickets for that here.
