Ranging in age from 18 to 20, Bang Bang Eche have the lowest average age of any band to be featured on KEXP’s broadcast from CMJ this year. But don’t believe anything you read about these young New Zealanders -- it’s very unlikely that they met at a live action role playing convention, that “eche” is “native Maori for ‘awesome partytimes,’” or that their song lyrics relate to the Mayan prophecy of the end of the world in 2012. You can believe that Bang Bang Eche’s brash and energetic dance punk will pull in larger and larger crowds during their upcoming tour of North America. They just need to all get their drivers licenses first!
