THE SETTLERS ‘Set it Straight’
Christchurch hip-hop crew The Settlers release their new single ‘Set It Straight’ is our Local Eyes video of the week. The Settlers; a thriving hip-hop crew from Lyttleton Harbour in Christchurch, have released their first single ‘Set It Straight’ from their forthcoming EP ‘Speech’, produced by Tia Drumma.
‘Speech’, continues the theme established in their ‘Steps’ EP and ‘Due Date’ album – mirroring The Settlers journey as they and their music evolve. The Settlers dynamic rap, soulful vocals, & engaging live performances make them an exciting part of the new wave of New Zealand hip-hop. Their conscious wordplay brings a strong feeling of awareness and empathy, while leaving you with memorable hooks, and quality production. With early success playing at Rhythm and Alps 2016, The Settlers continue to pack out local shows, and have played support performances for the likes of Homebrew, Bliss & Eso, Swidt, Raiza Biza, Thundamentals, Bailey Wiley, & Tiki Tane.
The Settlers consist of Anthony Horan and Elias Tyro (lead MCs), Laura Hunter (lead vocals), and DJ’d by Mike Thorpe. You can find them performing this New Year’s Eve at Northern Bass in Mangawhai.
