about

Debut album from genre breaking band Six60, combining soul, rock, roots and electronica. Debuted No 1, and gold in first week.
_____________________

Last night I went along to the HMV Forum to check out Six60′s first London gig. I was there to witness, well, history in the making. For those of you who don’t know who Six60 are, you will soon enough! I only recently discovered the wonders of the New Zealand based band, but my timing could not have been more appropriate, as it meant that I was able to see them live in Londontown. And they were electric!……..When the band played “Forever” near the end of heir set, the crowd went wild. I lost my mind. I had a grand time. “Don’t Forget Your Roots” however, probably best epitomises the spirit of last night. EVERYONE was singing along. EVERYONE was happy. It was a wonderful moment. A true celebration of their first London gig. The first of many, that I am sure. For a debut it doesn’t get much better.

"[Who’s Hot] One band that took us by surprise and we’ve fallen in love with is Six60. They started out in a crappy flat in Dunedin played a few gigs around the place, and have since become famous….they sure know how to perform and entertain.."

- VULTURE
______________________________

“Six60 combine rock with great big helpings of soul, funk, dub, and even sprinklings of dub-step and drum 'n' bass to create their very own niche sound in the process.”

- SOUL BOUNCE
______________________________

“But a bigger crowd had gathered at the Boiler Room stage (at The Big Day Out) for roots drum'n'bass rock favourites Six60. With girls hoisted on to their boyfriends' shoulders and the masses swooning and swaying, the Dunedin boys well and truly staked their claim as the country's new people's band.”

about

SIX60 Dunedin, New Zealand

Blending soul, rock, dubstep and drum and bass, their music is as dynamic, versatile and unexpected as their back story. Extended singer/songwriter jams incorporate dubstep sections as bridges, hard rocking guitar work duels with robust synthetics and thunderous low end bass over vibrant percussive rhythms, and in both voice and instrumentation infectious melody consistently shines through. ... more

Track Name: Six60 - Only To Be
Only to be
I live in expectancy
No wonder it feels
Like this wasn’t meant for me
But girl my mind is
So confined
That there ain't no point in reasoning
Now that its clear to see
It was all in front of me
And i'm right were i'm supposed to be

Yeah
I’m left just turning pages
Yeah yeah
But I know it was worth the ride
Ain't it good to be alive

So what will it be?
My dreams or my company
To lose what is me
Or follow the path I see
Boy my mind is
So confined
That I don’t even know where to begin
But it took me so long to find
That I could leave it all behind
Cos I’ve got everything id ever need

Yeah
I’m left just turning pages
Yeah yeah
But I know it was worth the ride
Ain't it good to be alive

Cos only to be
Was all that you got from me
You told me its real
And nothing comes easily
Cos that was the truth
I was losing all my youth
To a world that’s meant for someone else
Track Name: Six60 - Forever
Look into my eyes
It’s the start of my demise
Of everything I know and trust
But we shall rise
And much to their surprise
Cos we are not the ones
Who’s time it has begun

This is forever
Yeah
Baby they come and they go
But you know I know
This is forever
Yah
They come they go but you know I know
Yeah

Feeble are out lives
To their daggers and knives
The stoning of their words
And the malice in their minds
But we shall rise
And much to their surprise
Cos we are not the ones
Who’s time it has begun

This is forever
Yeah
Baby they come and they go
But you know I know
This is forever
Yah
They come they go but you know I know
Yeah
Track Name: Six60 - Beside You
So he’s going cross to London
But she never crossed his mind
Eyes locked to the future
But don’t see what he left behind
She can’t take it any longer
Now she’s holding on for dear, dear life
You should know
That you got to let him go
And its gona be alright

I know change is for the better
And we all go different ways
But we all need something old to hold
But if change is what your after
Then she won’t get in your way
But you’ll need something old to hold

So she laughs at all the promises
And she smiles at what she’s got
Hoping no one notices
That she’s something that she’s not
Now her thoughts are getting clouded
By the crown that’s on her head
But I can’t say
If you’re drifting away
Or you’re trying instead

I know change is for the better
And we all go different ways
But we all need something old to hold
But if change is what your after
Then she won’t get in your way
But you’ll need something old to hold
Track Name: Six60 - Windy Days
I know they say
That you can always find a better way
But i'm not fazed
When I get there
There ill stay
Live out the years in my own way

I know its true
Sometimes they get the best of you
They got me too
Blame me for the things I didn’t do
So what’s the use
Of staying the same when the same is the reason you lose

I know they say
Like the wind I will change
Like I care anyway
That i'm never the same
I’m different everyday
It’s the way that I am
It’s the ay ill remain
Like the dust in the wind ill be gone again

So where’s the line
Leave me alone
I think ill be fine in my own time
Cos if I need advice
Don’t think ill listen to your lies
Cos you love being right
When your wrong you act so surprised
Don’t follow me
All that I am
Is all that I need to be
And with no one around
Maybe then I will see
That being alone is just an empty relief

I know they say
Like the wind I will change
Like I care anyway
That I'm never the same
I’m different everyday
It’s the way that I am
It’s the ay ill remain
Like the dust in the wind ill be gone again
Track Name: Six60 - Run For It
Why are we waiting?
For nothing
Why are people holding on?
To dreams forgotten
We should all be moving forward
And losing all of
Our visions
Of inhibition.

Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it
Get out of here
Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it

Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it
Run for your life
Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it

Why do we lay down?
When we should be rising
Its not like we back down
For all that we have now
We should all be moving forward
And losing all of
Our visions
Of inhibition.

Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it
Run for your life
Here we coming
Run for it
Run for it
yeah
Track Name: Six60 - Hard For Me
I wish that I could be all that you want of me
I wish that I could see all that you see in me
I wish that I could be all that you want of me
I wish that I could see all that you see in me

But you’re making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah
But you’re making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah

I saw the way
You took it on yourself just to push it away
I'm wondering how
I’m supposed to stay if there ain't a doubt
I’m holding on
To every piece of light likes the night to dawn
But you can’t be seen
Though you say its me that tomorrow brings

But you’re making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah
But you’re making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah

I know its best
So why don’t we just put this all to rest
Ill take the blame
Where only gona wake this beast again
(@#$#@)
Go let it out
To hell with the rest
Cos now I know what you have
Is little at best

Cos your making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah
But you’re making it hard for me yeah
You’re making it hard for me yeah

Track Name: Six60 - Lost
Who am I today?
I’m caught beneath a shadow
Nothing I can say
For who ill be tomorrow
So tie me downward bound
Through me on the tracks
But you still wont run me over
And when I close my eyes
She pulls me to the side
To tell me it ain't over

Cos I’m not lost
I just want you to find me
I’m not lost
I just want you to find me

So what is going on?
Someone told me I was strong
Cos I am not myself
And myself is not my own
So cover me in red
Raise me overhead
But you still wont see me there
And when I close my eyes
She pulls me to the side
To tell me that i'm near

Cos i'm not lost
I just want you to find me
I'm not lost
I just want you to find me

Who am I today?
I’m caught beneath a shadow
Nothing I can say
For who ill be tomorrow
So tie me downward bound
Through me on the tracks
But you still wont run me over
And when I close my eyes
She pulls me to the side
To tell me it ain't over

Cos I'm not lost
I just want you to find me
I’m not lost
I just want you to find me
Track Name: Six60 - Rest Of You
Roxy, are you better than me
For leaving us behind
I’ve seen you drifting further from me

Roxy, are you listening to me
I think that we are losing time
Cos I need what your not giving to me
Before i'm satisfied

So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you
So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you

See I’m sure
That you don’t see me no more
So tell me who has stolen your eyes
It’s clear that someone else is here
Just tell him that you are mine

So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you
So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you

Roxy, how long has it been
I trust that you are doing well
It seems that he was better than me
So this is my farewell

So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you
So give me the rest, the rest, the rest of you
Give me the rest, the rest the rest of you
Track Name: Six60 - In The Clear
So the hours run away
You’re getting smaller by the day
But the shutters they keep you away
I hope your ready for the break away

So don’t succumb to mist and dust because you know they misconstrue
Cos the mind plays games to stay in frame
Whole they put those locks on you
When the lights come on the chain come off
And watch it start to flow
I hope you ready for the break away

Were in the clear
Were in the clear
Were in the clear

So the hours they run away
But the shutters they keep you away
Now the hours they run away
I hope you ready for the break away

Were in the clear
Were in the clear
Were in the clear
Were in the clear

So the hours they run away
But the shutters they keep you away
Now the hours they run away
I hope you ready for the break away
Track Name: Six60 - Green Bottles
Now i'm stuck inside this motion
I cannot control
Feels like the waves of the ocean
On top of me roll
So can I come up for air?
There must be somebody swimming near
To pull me up
I cant breath down here
Well just long enough that I lose me fear
That I won’t come up again
That ill sink to the bottom of what I am
At least Ill go down with a drink in my hand
Maybe that was the problem when it began

Whoa
I’m addicted and I can’t change
The path I walk it remains the same
But if I get swept away
Playing these games
Remember all tat I used to be
Not what I became

Now I’m falling to bottom
Of the hole in my head
Share the weight of my thoughts
Or are they better unread
But can you help me forget
There must be somebody swimming near
To pull me up
I can’t see down here
But the road I laced with checks and stops at every bend
So ill go down with a drink in my hand
Maybe that was the reason it all began


I’m addicted and I can’t change
The path I walk it remains the same
But if I get swept away
Playing these games
Remember all tat I used to be
Not what I became
Track Name: Six60 - Don't Forget Your Roots
Don’t forget your roots my friend
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend
The ones who made you
The ones who brought you here
Don’t forget your roots my friend
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend

So Johnny was a good man
Armed with the power of his home land
With his boots laced tight
And a ticket in his hand
Never to return home again
So he lost what he knows and what all is right
For a broken world
And a world of lies
But his days were numbered
Relationships suffered
He lost the faith of all those who matter so

Don’t forget your roots my friend
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend
The ones who made you
The ones who brought you here
Don’t forget your roots my friend
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend

So Jessie thought that she was all that
Thought she was headed on the right track
Left her mates at the gate
As she walked away
Never to look back again
So she lost what she knows and what all is right
For a brand new image
And a world of lies
But the days were numbered
Relationships suffered
She lost the faith of all those who matter so

Don’t forget your roots my friend
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend
The ones who made you
The ones who brought you here
Don’t forget your roots my friend yeah
Don’t forget your family yeah
Don’t forget your roots my friend
Track Name: Six60 - Finest Wine
Know that we got
Only a little time
So like it or not
We’re gonna be drinking wine
No need to stop
Until we see the sunshine
Start at the top
Until we ease our worried minds

Know that I’m lost without you
Think of the cost of what you do
To me you really mean something
Running away would fix nothing
I’m begging you please reconsider
With you here life is much better
Know that I’ll wait until I’m old and grey
Just to see your face again
Know that I’ll wait until I’m old and grey
Just to see your face again

Know that I’m watching
Every minute
I know what the clock says
But I’m not finished
Thinking of stopping
To rest our weary heads
The only option
Is thinking of times we’ve had

Bring me a glass of your finest wine
I wanna dance till he morning time
Bring us the food that will feed our minds
Drink the moon till we feel the shine
I’m just too blind to see the sine
We’re losing what we’ve made
Know that I’ll wait until I’m old and grey
Just to see your face again
Know that I’ll wait until I’m old and grey
Just to see your face again
Track Name: Six60 - Money
!!
Track Name: Six60 - Take It From Here
Tell me what we’re doing here
Because we could be anywhere
Take me away
I’m here to stay
Give it to me loud and clear
Tell me what you what you want from this
I don’t need much more than this
We got it all
Get your backs to the wall
Let me take it from here
From here
Let me take it from here
From here

Tell me what we’re doing here
Because we could be anywhere
Take me away
I’m here to stay
Give it to me loud and clear
Tell me what you what you want from this
I don’t need much more than this
We got it all
Get your backs to the wall
Let me take it from here
From here
Let me take it from here
From here
Track Name: Six60 - Rise Up 2.0
It’s taking all your mite
To get over all this strife
Don’t let them tell you how to treat your life
But the sunshine brings the day
And the darkness starts to fade
Won’t you stand up, rebel
Won’t you show them you know how

Won’t you rise up
Won’t you rise up
Won’t you rise up
Baby it’s a revolution

I’m calling out to you
Stand up for what is true
Don’t be afraid to fight
You’ve gotta stand up for your right
I’m calling out to you
Stand up for what is true
Don’t be afraid to fight
You’ve gotta stand up for your right

Won’t you rise up
Won’t you rise up
Won’t you rise up
Baby it’s a revolution
Calling out to you
Stand up for what is true
Don’t be afraid to fight
Baby it’s a revolution
