crone is the experimental techno duo of Emily Berryman and Lucy Reid. Birthed in the cold depths of Ōtepoti, they are now based in the capital city where they spent their first year concocting tracks from the spectral confines of an old fish chiller.
The duo released their sophomore EP second skin in June 2021 via Berlin-based platform The Brvtalist. It transports their distinctive discordant sound into a clubbier format, from the trance influence of layers apart (one) and (two), to the techno stomp of RDU favourite crush.
However, it is their high-powered and intoxicating live sets that they are best known for. They have played support for the likes of international acts Ptwiggs and Betty Apple, who share their affinity for dramatic sounds and bold aesthetics.
They have also performed at and facilitated events for MESH, the DIY collective the pair established after moving to Pōneke in 2018. While currently on hiatus, MESH has been instrumental in creating spaces for local artists and audiences to experiment and come together in a supportive environment.
