The Tāmaki Makaurau-based alt/electronica/trip-hop project by UK/New Zealand Producer/musician Pete Hickman.
Initially an electronica studio project which was started in late 2019, the concept was to fuse electronica and live instruments together - from this idea Speech Act Theory was born and has now grown into an exciting 5 piece live band which now consists of Drummer Ben Bradford, Guitarist Jamie Crerar, Bass player Michelle Anderton, Vocalist Brodie Macdonald and Pete Hickman on Keys/Synths/Programming/vocals.
With four previous singles behind them (Holding Out released in Aug 2021, September 2021’s Grief Wave and October 2021’s Straight Lines)
Speech Act Theory returned with their latest single Old Versus New in February 2022 and a sell out show at Whammy Mainroom in Auckland.
If you like Zero 7, Radiohead, Cinematic Orchestra, Massive Attack, Four Tet, Boards of Canada then you'll be in for a treat.
"it is refreshing and a very welcome change to hear something that harkens back to the classic trip-hop and downbeat era but with a modern spin"
