Holiday Records 7 Inch Compilation — Various Artists

Regular price $40.00

A 7 inch record hadn’t been pressed in Aotearoa in over thirty years. Holiday Records wanted to change that with a great opportunity for the local music community to commemorate this monumental occasion with something special in this uncertain time.

To celebrate the announcement Holiday Records (along with sponsorship partners Roundhead Studios, Munki Studiosand Sunday Best​) hosted a competition to select an aspiring artist to have their music complimentary pressed as New Zealand’s first 7 inch record since 1987.

Aspiring artists are asked to submit two original tracks (A-side and B-side) and a background of themselves and their submitted music. Mike Chunn(Split Enz, Play It Strange), Charlotte Ryan(Radio New Zealand), Rodney Fisher (Goodshirt, New Zealand Music Commission) and Jonny Vahry​ and Big Hungry(95bFM) generously offered their time and indisputable experience in the music industry to judge the competition.

After 350+ entries Holiday Records thought it would be a disservice to only immortalise the tracks of the winners, Na Noise​, onto the beautiful medium of vinyl. Naturally the solution was the aptly named “Holiday Records 7 Inch Competition Compilation”which features 12 of our competition finalists who also happen to be a collection of Aotearoa’s finest up-and-coming artists representing a variety of genres:
