NZ Music Month Playlist - Dartz

Posted by Lee Densem

Halfway down, but not out

Yay May! It's always been our favourite month. Ever since 2001 that is, when the first NZ Music Month kicked off. This year we're highlighting some artists we think you deserve to hear about. We asked them to come up with a 100% Kiwi playlist to share with you. It's Aotearoa as!

Each week we'll release a new playlist, and then we're rounding out the month with a special edition of Friday Night Bites - where you could see some of the artists live at BurgerFuel HQ (stay tuned for details).

This week is Dartz. They're a self-described "band from Wellington". These punk rockers also have an affinity for dumplings and Dominion Rd. Check out the playlist from Dartz below, and make sure you tune in to hear the full story behind the selections on-air. Happy NZ Music Month 2022 from Radio BurgerFuel.


We talked to bass player Clark, and he told us about the list of classic Aotearoa tracks including The Mutton Birds, The Exponents and Th' Dudes. Frankly, you need to listen to do some sweet reminiscing of how good we've had it here in NZ for a long time.

Also, we should point out that they're back in Auckland for a show at Whammy on 14 May, before doing the deed back in Welly at Parrotdog on 28 May.
