New Zealand Music Month - 9/5/2009

Stellar* burst onto the New Zealand music scene in 1999 with its debut album Mix enjoying tremendous commercial success, and recognition from within the industry with eight Tui awards for this, and the follow-up album Magic Line. Fronted by singer-songwriter Boh Runga, Stellar* then took time out for several years before bursting back on to the scene with their 2006 album Something Like Strangers.

The music website Amplifier notes that critical acclaim and commercial success are not always the best of bedfellows, but opines that Stellar* seems to be the exception to the rule. Enjoy Violent...
