Interview with Opposite Sex!

Opposite Sex is a band that originated from Gisborne but managed to settle themselves down in Dunedin. They’re a three-piece consisting of Tim, Lucy and Fergus.

The band called Fighting Amp or if you will, Fight Amp as they call themselves now have been around for a long time – since 2003. They’re originally from the town of Williamsburg, which is laden perfectly in symbiosis with New Jersey.
