Curlys Jewels

New Zealand Rock Band


Curlys Jewels are an original hard rock band from Wellington, New Zealand. They formed in 2011 and have continually evolved into one of New Zealand's most promising underground bands.

They have just released their brand new single, Sneaky. The track was recorded at Roundhead Studios in Auckland with the legendary producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Opshop, The Feelers), and mixed by the 2017 NZ Music Awards winning producer Clint Murphy. The new single is a powerful track that captures the bands tight grooves, solid riffs and soaring vocals.

Curlys Jewels are about to embark on tour with the amazing NZ band, The Feelers. They will be playing 4 shows across the North Island supporting these giants of the NZ rock scene.

Off the back of a huge 2017 including the release of their EP The Skin We Shed, which peaked at #11 on the Official NZ Top 40 NZ Album chart, a successful North Island headline tour, support invitations from  rock giants Head Like A Hole (NZ) and Devilskin (NZ), and a performance at the NZ Tattoo and Art Festival 2017, Curlys Jewels are charging ahead into 2018. Curlys Jewels have also been on the bill with amazing acts including Alien Weaponry (NZ), Tiki Tane (NZ) , Villainy (NZ), Skinny Hobos (NZ) and Sumo Cyco (Can).



“…hard hitting, modern rock, deserving of a crowded main stage, and not just a back street bar...” –

“None of these songs would sound out of place on radio and there is just the right mix of heaviness balanced out with some great singing.”

 “…Janelle has an incredibly powerful voice which doesn’t falter – whether she is belting it out in their heavier numbers or soaring through the slower songs.  On top of that, she absolutely owns the stage…”
