Masaya formed in 2019 when lead singer Reiki Ruawai needed to put together a band for a university assignment. He coaxed his sister, Kaea, to jump on the drums and friend Muroki Pearsall to play bass.

They performed together as a three-piece for a short time before they were joined by Jules Blewman (Tunes of I) on lead guitar and Joe Kaptein on keys.

As a five-piece, they recorded their 2019 EP, 'Tongue & Groove' and have been playing live shows and festivals ever since.
