HALF/TIME is a Māori centred post-punk band from Aotearoa (New Zealand) featuring Wairehu Grant on guitar and vocals, Cee on bass and vocals, and Ciara Bernstein on drums. Together they perform emotionally charged songs addressing decolonisation, structural racism and cultural resilience. Their music intertwines lyrics in English and te reo Māori (the Māori language) with heavy riffs and driving rhythms.
In November of 2023 Half/Time released their EP ‘Black Union Jack’ which was recorded in July of the same year during Matariki (the Māori New Year). The EP is available on most streaming services including Bandcamp and Spotify.
