Juice TV presents emerging Wellington act, Supermodel, recently returned to NZ shores from recording their debut album in the UK, and are excited to announce an extensive NZ tour to celebrate their homecoming.
The hotly-tipped Wellington-based Brit pop and indie rock quartet are pumped to be back on stage after spending seven weeks recording in the legendary Modern World Studios in Tetbury, Gloucestshire, UK.
The album, produced by acclaimed Welsh record producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Opshop) and his engineer of choice, Clint Murphy, Supermodel's debut album is skyscraper high in sound and intent. Scheduled for release early 2011 and driven by lead singer/songwriter Mark Hanify's love of theatrical show-tunes, classic rock, the great crooners, and augmented by the use of full string section and choir arrangements will solidify Supermodel as a unique sound within the international music scene.
Following recording, Supermodel performed for Feed Me Music at the oldest live music venue in London, The 100 Club and won over a capacity audience from a stage previously graced by the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Sex Pistols. Following the show, Supermodel received multiple UK/European tour offers from prestigious industry attendees.
Now back in New Zealand and happy to be home, the band is busy preparing a tour de force level stage show for this September, when in association with Juice TV, they will hit the local touring circuit to follow up on the profile lift they made during an extensive, rapturously received national tour in May, just prior to their departure to the UK.
With bigger production values, bigger sound and a new live show, this September, at R18 and all-ages shows across the country, as well as some highly anticipated ski-field performances in the South Island, Supermodel will send you dreaming. Summer is on its way and this is one band that will be everywhere, you know you want to be able to tell your friends that you were there first.
Throw together 4 girls, give them some guitars, a bass, a drum kit and a microphone and you've got New Zealand's answer to the hottest all girl rock group… Look out as these girls are going places and they mean business!
“Addicted” is their first single from their debut album which Ivy Lies have just finished recording over in LA (released in 2010). The power of this band is evident with their combination of pop / anthem rock songs. From the moment you hear Ivy Lies’s music, you are hooked, as their tracks resonate down the radio waves and these gorgeous girls are beamed onto your television screens.
In September 2009, after meeting with new management, the band was quickly offered the opportunity to head straight over to Los Angeles to record their album, with famed producer Clif Magness and also recording in Bob Clearmountains Studio (where the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Robbie Williams, Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow have all recorded). Clif, a Grammy Award winning producer, has also worked with Avril Lavigne, Lisa Marie Presley, The Veronicas and Vanessa Amorosi to name a few.
Originally from Christchurch (New Zealand), the band was formed by Lisa, Emla and Rosie under the name 'Starlett' while the girls were still at school. This is where the band caught the eye of SonyBMG, who then signed the band to a development deal, when they were only 17 years old.

Hailing from all around Auckland, grounded in a wide range of experiences, and united by the same passion, Atlanta Fall brings a cry of hope carried in powerful music and compelling lyrics.
