Infinite Flying Kick, a band made up of five Taiwanese kids, have been receiving a lot of attention within the New Zealand music scene of late. From embryonic jam sessions less than two years ago, the band now explode onto the stage, blasting out their spirited, angular rock with passion and charisma. Their debut EP – Checkmate – is brilliant, the single Mr. Sad Robot recently hitting the top of the Kiwi radio charts. They’re currently working on a follow-up release, which promises to build on the strengths of Checkmate whilst walloping the non-believers squarely around the ears. [see also The Chills]
