Introducing: Six60

Six60 is another solid band coming out of the Aotearoa (New Zealand) music scene. While they do lean more on the rock/alternative side, some of their music definitely has that reggae flare, including hit debut single "Don't Forget Your Roots." I really like their style, the blending of genres, and especially the mixture of these attributes alongside the soulful vocals. I am not a big electronic fan either, though I do find their inclusions to be tasteful. Check out some of my top Six60 picks below including probably my favorite track "Green Bottles" as well as the song "Forever" which is more on the rock side. Looks like they are making some moves and will be playing a couple festivals in the UK and US this summer. I wouldn't be surprised if we hear a lot more about these guys in the months to come. Listen to their debut self titled album, check out tour dates, and find more about the band on their website, six60.co.nz.
