Revulva is a femme-lead soul, funk, disco eight-piece hailing from Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Making a scene since 2020, Revulva have been turning heads at their theatrical and epic live shows performing at festivals such as 121 Festival, Tora Bombora, Nest Fest, Welcome To Nowhere, Twisted Frequency among many more. Revulva released their debut EP “Girl’s Gotta Eat” mid-2022 to rave-reviews and an SRN “best EP” nomination. Their last release “This Town” remained in the NZ SRN and Hot Singles charts for months while the band toured the single up and down the country. Revulva is sitting on a lot of material and are scheming to release it into the world in 2024.
"Revulva is a fresh force in the NZ music scene with their unique fusion of jazz, funk, and new age soul grooves - not to mention elements of Latin, disco, and even some blues. Complete with a four piece of horns, some funk guitar, dynamic keys, and a tightly locked-in rhythm section, they’ve created a sound that lovers of dancing and genre bending songs can’t get enough of. "

"the summer has long departed, the nights are drawing in, but luckily a band like Revulva exists with the ideal sonic tonic to curtail the approaching winter blues. "

"Musically, this album is full of well-composed melodies that come together to form a delicious melting pot of jazz, pop, and soul. The eight musicians don’t overpower each other but find their gaps and work together like a well-oiled public transport system to get the listener from one side of the album to the other. "

"Their blissfully aware attitudes of expanding on topics that may be considered to be taboo to talk about in public made the laughter erupt and the music flow with special generosity of their uniqueness. Rolling in with this heavily epic jazz-pop sound, the electricity that Revulva exposed was unwavering, honest and exceptionally on the raw side to some degree. "
