about

The music of Opposite Sex is, they say, “an absurdist-logico mix of Euro pop, Beat poetry, and subterranean lo-fi adventuring." The album is their own unique genre-defying trip through the experimental pop underground of their imaginations.

“The new wave of New Zealand pop begins here....it’s remarkable, leaping from sea-sick waltzes and crunchy post-punk to ADD-pop (see the hyper opener “La Rat”) 4/5 Uncut

“The kind of half-melted, buckled pop that suggests they’ve just re-entered earth’s atmosphere after a long strange trip away... Opposite Sex attract rather than repel.” Q

"It's absolutely brilliant...I absolutely adore it. It's going to be in my top five albums of the year definitely." Marc Riley, BBC 6Music

“...one of those amazing pieces of ragged art that must simply be heard to be believed...Get it.” 9/10 Popmatters.com

“weird and fantastic... Opposite Sex is one of the most infectious local debuts of recent years.” 8/10 undertheradar.co.nz

Track Name: A Year on Your Own
A Year on Your Own

This rat he is mean friend a cat friend of me
He is grey and he lives on Rum Road
Don’t say his name because this rat isn’t tame
He is free

So, what if you spent a year on your own
Would you think that the world was gone
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

Cars are passing incredibly fast
Makes me feel like I’m made out of glass
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I dug a hole outside: it was three feet wide
I put myself inside: saw a place to hide

This rat he is mean friend a cat friend of me
He is grey and he lives on Rum Road
Don’t say his name because this rat isn’t tame
He is me

So, what if you spent a year on your own
Would you think that the world was wrong
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

Cars are passing incredibly fast
Makes me feel like I’m made out of glass
I think we all got it wrong. I think we all got it wrong

So I spent an hour staring at a chair
To turn around turn around and find it wasn’t there
Knew there was something inconsistent
But I think I might have missed it
That is why I should be more aware

So I dug a hole outside: it was three feet wide
And put myself inside: for a place to hide
