New Zealand Birds II is a compilation of (mostly) local artists covering famous New Zealand songs. As was the first volume in this series, which was comprised of original material, this was curated by Rhys Stannard, who records under the name Voe. For this volume Rhys was after a particular arrangement for the tracks:
I wanted to start with the more out there tracks, have a weird buzz out in the middle and then finish with the poppier cleaner tracks. Kinda the opposite to how most people release their albums at the moment…
