Since the release of their debut album ‘Evil Adventures and Happy Endings’ in 2017, Grey Lynn heroes Eno x Dirty have been selling out shows all across the country (and a couple in Asia), performing at festivals like Rhythm and Vines, smashing streaming records and shifting units with no signs of slowing. Eno x Dirty’s ‘Honest To Whom’ is their first full project since 2017’s ridiculous debut. Are they albums? Are they EPS? Who knows. Recorded at Red Bull Studios in Auckland with Ben Lawson, the single Get That Cash is an abrasive and constantly changing hook driven beast, showcasing one of Eno’s first times in front of the mic. “‘Honest To Whom’ is a reflection of where and who we are now. It’s the first time we will be releasing something free of the feeling the material is old to us, instead we are proud to stand next it like a 4 year old showing his parents the macaroni painting he did at kindy that day.”
Church and AP met on the first day of high school in 2013 over a shared appreciation for Chance the Rapper. They started creating music together and individually, Church was handpicked by David Dallas for Red Bull 64 Bars, spent all the time they could soaking up the local hip hop scene, and then started releasing music on the internet and playing sell-out gigs. The industry and hip hop fans took notice. Last summer they released their first official single ‘Ready or Not’ which went straight into the New Zealand singles charts, spent two months on Mai FM’s A rotation playlist, was playlisted across Spotify and Apple and made the New Music Friday cover for Spotify Australia and New Zealand. The track hit #1 on Shazam as people tried to work out who was making this brilliant new music that has garnered more than three million streams. Now, six years on from that first meeting, Church & AP are poised to become New Zealand’s latest hip hop heavyweights with their collective YKK. Their debut album Teeth came out on the 15 November.
