Tamaki Makaurau


Listen to Ripship

Ripship are a sci-fi psych-rock duo hailing originally from Tāmaki Makaurau, now Pōneke. The prolific performers shake venues with heavy riffs, off-kilter beats and deep synth loops. Science fiction and technological anxiety influence both the timbre and subject matter of Ripship’s songs, with vocoded lyrics touching on AI uprising, interstellar travel and the heat death of the universe.
