Since their formation in Wellington in 1997, The Phoenix Foundation has been subject to a raft of success including five critically acclaimed albums and countless nominations and awards. The latest offering, Give Up Your Dreams, is their most contemporary venture and explores a more rhythmically driven and cosmic soundscape.

Co-frontman Samuel Scott explains - “Give Up Your Dreams could sound like a defeat but it represents something quite defiant, joyous and celebratory…It’s a mantra about letting go, worrying less, and enjoying your reality instead of always wanting more."
