This Saturday, in an evening of post-rock, heavy shoegaze and psych-rock, Sora Shima are playing with Auckland’s ROPE, and Hamilton’s Landlords and Qualms at Nivara Lounge. The following day, Sora Shima and ROPE play again under the Tauranga Harbour Bridge. Sora Shima’s latest addition, the pedal-obsessed Gareth Schott, questioned Brian Purington of ROPE about their pedals, sound, their upcoming album, and their pedals. Read the interview -> HERE <-
