Auckland based post-punks Guardian Singles are a band known for their electrifying live shows, hypnotic melodies and ferocious energy.

Thom Burton (SoccerPractise/Wilberforces) Durham Fenwick (Green Grove) Yolanda Fagan (Echo Ohs/Na Noise) and Fiona Campbell (Vivian Girls/Chain and the Gang/Coolies) began by playing only sparsely during the New Zealand summers between 2015-2018, when drummer Campbell was back from the USA visiting family and friends.

They released their self-titled debut album on 12” vinyl earlier (Through new Auckland label Moral Support Records) this year to critical acclaim. The singles “Tea Lights Exploding” and “Being Alone” quickly became
B-net Favourites, as well as being picked up by college radio stations and blogs in spots around the globe as diverse as Colombia, Italy, Denmark and France.
They toured the North Island in July this year (between the lockdowns) and are currently working on material for their next album.
