Written and recorded over three countries and two continents, The Isolator is the latest release to come from New Zealand rock act, Cairo Knife Fight.
Differing from previous releases, this EP sees frontman Nick Gaffaney expanding his writing horizons to include working with some of the best talent on offer within New Zealand and beyond.
While staying true to the duo ethos of the band in recording, The Isolator features writing appearances from New Zealand musicians Aaron Tokona, Joel Haines, Laughton Kora, William Knapp, Alexander Edward Winter and Samuel K.
Sessions took place between Melbourne, Auckland and New York City with the final result being overseen and mixed by NYC based Kiwi ex-pat producer Justyn Pilbrow (The Neighbourhood, King 810) and Melbourne based New Zealander Samuel K.
This diversity in writing partners has seen an EP develop of great subtlety and dynamism while still maintaining that fierce and razor sharp intensity Cairo Knife Fight is known for.
See Cairo Knife Fight perform their new material at Electric Avenue Festival in Christchurch on Waitangi Day - 6 February, 2015!
