initial (no caps) are a 3 piece alt-pop-rock band from Auckland made up of Simon (guitar/vox), Craig (bass/vox) and Oskar (drums/vox).
We have around 30 original songs ranging from light-hearted acoustic love songs to all out neck-jarring, child-upsetting rock epics, and we have recently recorded a three track demo CD at the Rock Factory.
We draw from our collective influences including Weezer, Alice in Chains, The Beatles, Tool, Foo Fighters, Gravity, Various cartoons & movies, milk etc, and incorporate the vocal abilities of all three band members in our songs.
We are passionate about our music, and love performing for an audience.
