SUMMER THIEVES

Rising from the dusty rinsed streets of Dunedin’s Scarfieville Summer Thieves are a melting pot of Reggae, Hip-Hop, Rock, and Funk. From humble beginnings, the band have built a large and incredibly loyal fan base and gained the support of Universal Music NZ for the release of their debut album, ‘Warped’. “We’re just laid back guys who put on parties, we don’t take ourselves too seriously,” vocalist Jake Barton says “we want everyone to have a good time.”
