L40 - Love Will Never Go

Share this

Our Backyard Beats track this week is 'Love Will Never Go' from L40.

L40 are an 6 piece band. L40, which is short for ‘Latitude -40’ indicates the latitude coordinate of -40 degree's, which on a map, shows you the location of their home, Rātana Pā. Rātana Pā is where the majority of the band members are from, therefore, the name ‘L40’ acts as a constant reminder of this. You can expect an explosive show from L40 with elements of RnB, Hip Hop, Neo-Soul Reggae. This mixture of these multi-talented musicians gives the band a unique sound, great musicianship and the freedom to switch between instruments as they please. L40 are the current holders of the “new Emerging Artist” award from the Maori music awards and there current album “Reggae Sunshine” stood at number 2 on the Australian iTunes chart and 3rd on the Nz iTunes chart on its release.
