NZMM: Favourite Wellington Music Moment: Lucifer Gunne

For NZ Music Month the last couple of years, we asked bands/artists for a favourite memory of making music in Wellington.

It could involve a favourite gig, a funny story from the recording studio, a moment that led to the inspiration for a song, the fond recollection of a defunct venue, or the piece of music or lyric that they were most proud of creating.

We really enjoyed the stories people told us, so we are doing it again this year.

Next up is Rory, Vocalist/Bassist of alternative rock band Lucifer Gunne. Rory McDonald started writing his own music in 2014 and released his first solo EP, “The Red King” mid 2017. Written in an alternative style with metal influences, “The Red King” EP was the birth of Lucifer Gunne’s dark and hard-hitting sound. Their latest single Energenetic was released in March to rave reviews.

One of my favorite moments with this band would definitely have to be recording the vocals for our latest single “Energenetic”. After being woken up in the studio by a band eager to get the recording process finished, I took my first vocal takes after being asleep for over 2 hours, and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!
