Spawts are a DIY alternative band with indie rock, garage and post punk influences. Their sound is rooted in melodic sensibilities while exploring the landscape of live performance through boundless sonic tangents and lively textured guitars. Spawts formed in Christchurch in 2015 and is led by Kieran Ormandy (guitar and vocals) and Jamie Hannah (drums). The band relocated to Auckland where they expanded to a four-piece live act, joined by Sam Austin (guitar) and Ben Locke (bass). In 2019, Spawts released their debut record AV1 and completed their first headlining tour of New Zealand.
