Park Rd is a 5-piece indie-pop band from West Auckland in New Zealand. The band was formed while studying together at a small high school in 2018. They quickly started making big waves in their local music community, which expanded to Australia and other parts of the globe following their releases.
In 2018 they released their first single, Lay Me Down, with thanks to Play it Strange. In 2019 they released Surfer Boy Paradise and Lie (thanks again to Play it Strange), and also went on to become national finalists in New Zealand's prestigious Smokefreerockquest competition.
In May 2020, Park Rd released their highly anticipated first body of work - their EP Sandcastles.
The full line up of the band is Tom Chamberlain on vocals, Angus Hampton-Carr on lead guitar, Leo Crawshaw-Bond on guitar, Carlos Martin on bass, and Te Kapua Pene on drums.
