From the crass to the sublime, the emotive to the absurd, The Troubles are inventive, passionate, honest, and wholly life affirming.
Recorded on one of their exuberant evenings at Happy, their debut album is a moment of magic, a never to be repeated snapshot of one of New Zealand’s most original and engaging ensembles.
