Dolphin Friendly established their name from the bands motivation to promote strong movement towards environmentalism, ocean sustainability, and social well-being, broadcasting their disregard for the degenerate political systems and corporate mindsets destined to fuck the planet through the selfish greed of economic interests. Due to the band’s diversity in musical taste, they’ve found themselves infusing a mixture of sounds platformed on a hard-pysc, liquid reggae, crunch rock etiquette, performing their art to the people in a wild fashion unseen in New Zealand bands before.
Dolphin Friendly have continued to drop jaws with their live performances, bringing a new age show of Rock n’ Roll antics that one would question are influenced from the likes of rock gods Nirvana and The Doors by their comparable nature’s on stage, engaging the crowd in sometimes debaucherous mannerisms and “loose” behaviour.
The band’s first single High made it into RDU Radio’s most played monthly song of 2018, becoming scribed into the radios pressed annual vinyl series. Within one year of the bands inception, they have charged the New Zealand music scene aggressively, having played some genuine festival feats such as Rhythm and Vines 2018, TIDES 2018, and headlining Tea Party 2018, not to mention sharing stages with Aussie and Kiwi thumpers Skegss, Bootleg Rascal, Jungle Giants, Shapeshifter, L.A.B, and Mako Road. There’s no sign of the boys slowing down as they prepare for their summer mega tour of Australasia 2019!
