TVNZ Review
Rating: 9/10

"The minute I flipped the disc into the computer, like the sun creeping through the rain clouds, a huge smile began to creep across my face...

...I'm sure you probably wonder if a ukulele band would be nothing more than a novelty act, but there's definitely a sign of musical maturity in this latest EP - from the aloha themed vibe of Blue Smoke, to the opening clap salvo of Could Never Take the Place of Your Man, what the band's done is to create a series of multi layered vocals and harmonies which are pitch perfect and insidiously catchy in the extreme.

And more importantly than all of that, they've made music beautiful, harmonious fun. If I'm forced to pick a favourite from the EP it has to be their cover of the Coral's Dreaming of You - from the opening seconds of the deep double bass to the wonderful uke solo and vocals, this is rambunctious and raucous fun - and perfectly suited for a band who're fast becoming one of New Zealand's musical tour de forces. It's the perfect partner for all those upcoming summer barbies and late night deck parties." Read more

Blue Smoke

Blue Smoke Vinyl
On the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of New Zealand's first official pop single, the WIUO are proud to present a shiny blue vinyl release of our version of 'Blue Smoke', Ruru Karaitiana's wartime song of longing, with party hit 'That's Amore' on the B-side, and incredibly beautiful artwork by Stephen Templer, overseen by our own Francis Salole & Sam Auger.

The records were pressed at United Record Pressing in Nashville, USA (where Jack White gets his records made!).
The whole product is an artwork in itself but by all means, we encourage you to play the record. But if you don't have a record player, by golly it would look lovely framed on the mantlepiece!

The perfect gift for Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Anzac Day. Very limited pressing.

Available at selected record stores. Ask us where!
