Tāmaki Makaurau electronic artist Power Nap aka Chris Cudby released his debut solo long-player Shaped Canvas in mid-2019, delivering student radio hits ‘Pizza Man’ and ‘Forever Man’. The former Golden Axe singer and keyboardist leads listeners on a catchy sonic journey through proto-vaporwave party jams, lo-tech psychedelic pop, looping sample slices and zoned-out soundscapes. He’s brought the party live alongside SWIDT, Disasteradio and Neil Hamburger – don’t miss Power Nap in action this summer.

"Sarah Gooding: As one half of the electronic party duo Golden Axe, Chris Cudby helped create an effervescent synthwave scene in New Zealand in the late 2000s. Since then, he’s ventured into solo electronic experimentation as Power Nap, releasing the hypnotic Eat Or Be Eaten and, more recently, two songs from his upcoming debut album, Shaped Canvas."
