Formed in Wellington NZ, Sidewinder is an all new combination of experienced musicians.

A mash up of riff-heavy southern rock with a grungy aftertaste, this five piece from Wellington, New Zealand has attracted a great deal of fan interest in a short time.

Hitting the stage for their debut just six weeks after forming, the band received a rousing response from a large crowd. Since then the band had not kept still, clocking in numerous live shows as well as heading into the studio to record their first singles.

»Sirens«, the bands first single was duly released April 2021 and was enthusiastically picked up by local rock radio, overseas bloggers and podcasters. That same month the band hit the road for concert dates in Tauranga, Hamilton and Auckland to promote the single before returning to a triumphant homecoming show in Wellington.

A second single »Mississippi Fire« was released in June 2021 and their third, »Walk Of Ishi« was released in August. The fourth track »Red Moon« was released November 1st 2021. All the songs will also be on the full album »Vines« due early in 2022.
