    Tooled up with an arsenal of drums, guitar, synth bass and loop pedals, Cairo Knife Fight pack a riff-driven punch that has seen them hold their own against the title holders they've shared stages with - names like Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures and Queens of the Stone Age.

    The collective back-story of drummer/main vocalist Nick Gaffaney and guitarist/loop guru Aaron Tokona reads like a brag sheet of some of New Zealand's finest musicians including Anika Moa, Fat Freddy's Drop and Dimmer, as well as Tokona's own former contenders, rock outfit Weta. It's as a duo however that they've blazed their very own trail, finding new ground between the power of Led Zeppelin and the fearlessness of Radiohead. Following the release of last year's self-titled EP plus an opportunity to kick out their jams at New York City's CMJ Music Festival, the duo returned to Auckland's Rou ndhead Studios in May to again work magic. They returned from the sessions with II, a brand new EP that bottles their supercharged sound on four blistering cuts.
