Listen to The Shocking and Stunning

The Shocking and Stunning are Jack Hooker (synths/sampler/effects) and Sam Lovrich-FitzPatrick (drums). Described by Martyn Pepperell in VanguardRed Magazine as “emotive, physically propulsive and above all, f***ing epic”, they combine densely layered synths and heavy live drums to make wall-of-sound music that sits between dance, trance, noise and drone. The Shocking and Stunning were most in the early 2010's. In that time they released six EPs, scored a documentary, collaborated with rappers Tourettes and Name UL, toured numerous times throughout New Zealand and Australia, performed at festivals such as Camp A Low Hum and Rhythm and Alps, and played many house parties. Since then the band have made sporadic festival appearances, and In 2019 they released their long-overdue debut full-length album.
