Do you share a name with something iconic? For bass player and vocalist of Ōtautahi power pop band Imperial April, it’s an iconic kiwi song that hit the charts years before she was born. “It doesn’t happen so much these days, but there were a string of years where almost every new person I met would burst into song when I said what my name was.” This month the kiwi classic, Victoria by Dance Exponents, celebrates its 40th anniversary, so it seemed appropriate to mark the occasion with a version of their own.
Channeling 60s girl groups and with a new chord structure, their take on the song is at once classic while giving an off-kilter vibe. The pinched-fuzz guitar melodies will linger in your head for days from this fun reimagining of one of our nation’s most beloved songs.
