OLDER's new album Unmasked Out May 1 2024

New album 'UNMASKED' out May 1st 2024

OLDER - Jel Legg & Julie Legg

OLDER The Band

OLDER have a passion for producing biting social commentary that takes a hard swipe at modern life. Jel Legg & Julie Legg produce music that is laden with antipathy for mainstream culture and is seasoned with an alternative point of view, wrapped up in a layer of respectability. They champion the creative thinker and the under dog yapping in the wind.

Being driven by a love for high-energy alternative rock music, their productions can be both simple and cinematic while their lyrics question everything and assume nothing. As a result of never being constrained by genre expectations or commercial goals, their albums are accessible to a diverse audience.

The band are ambiverts living away from people in rural New Zealand, happy in their own space and never more so than in their own Studio109. When they 'go out to play' they love to hang with interesting, creative types and engage deeply. Julie and Jel have both have adult ADHD which inspires much of their  writing - Julie is also the author of The Missing Piece. Together, as OLDER, their 'inner child' is alive and well and they are proud to define their own space in the world of music.


Latest song - 'Flip Side' !

'Flip Side' is a nostalgic look back at growing up in the 1970s when life for kids came with a lot of freedom and real-world fun. It's also a reflection on the cycle of life between each generation and, as you'd expect from the band, there's a wistful nod to the loss of simpler times.

Album Released November 2021


Following on from their debut album ‘SILENCE’ (2019) OLDER now build on their unique place in the New Zealand music scene with their second album, ‘HUMAN+’, released 1 November 2021. This is a hard-edged, up-front album drawing on multiple genres resulting in a unique sound.

The songs on ‘HUMAN+’ are grounded in the notion of freedom - a theme at the heart of most of OLDER's writing - in particular freedom for people who reject standard relationship narratives.
