Snap Happy is welcomed as a wonderful opportunity for two enormously talented vocalist-wordsmith-composers to blend and bend their own and others’ expectations. As the duo 'Taniwha', these two accomplished soloists bring a new ‘power of two’ to this latest live-in-studio adventure.
Full of heart and playfulness, the songs on Snap Happy deliver a brave, delicate and delightful romp, full of momentum, through many musical moods.
Taniwha: 'A fabulous monster supposed to reside in deep water. A chief, a prodigy, the human body. A bold, poetic figure...'
(from A dictionary of the Maori language, H W Williams, 1971)
