Premiere: Aotearoa/New Zealand’s Model Home exclusively unveil new single ‘Midnight, Dragon Garden’ on announcement of album and national tour

We are very pleased to unveil the new single ‘Midnight, Dragon Garden’ from indie pop merchants Model Home, signed to Brisbane’s False Peak Records in a joint venture with New Zealand’s Papaiti Records label. A new album has also been announced, with the band about to embark on a tour around New Zealand.

‘Midnight, Dragon Garden’ has the band’s signature jingle jangle brightness and airy floating vocals wrapped around a melancholy melody and dry observant lyrics. The band says:

Midnight is a love song. The love of your friends, the love of dumplings and mapo tofu, things of this nature.

This is a band that is adept at creating an antipodean tone infused with a visceral power and a powerful delivery. The track has an alt. folk air with a story telling tradition with an iron heart beat and a wistful tone:

‘Midnight, Dragon Garden’ is out tomorrow (21 July 2023) and available to stream here.

The track comes off the band’s debut album ‘…And Nobody Made A Sound’ just announced for release on 15 September and to be supported by a national New Zealand tour – dates as follows:

16/9 – Christchurch – Space Academy

23/9 – Auckland – Thirsty Dog

29/9 – Palmerston North – The Stomach30/9 – Wellington – Welsh Dragon

Tickets available here.
