The NZ On Air ‘Wild Card’ funding will contribute 10k to the making of a video and further recording of the WATERCOLOURS track.
This means, of course, that July’s voting is open now.
The Audience have also issued a statement :
“Throughout the last few weeks we have been listening to feedback and getting suggestions from artists, music businesses and music fans. As a result, artists can now load as many unreleased or released tracks as they like onto theaudience.co.nz, but only one track can be considered for the ‘Focus’ unreleased chart. We are continuing to develop the site and we will be rolling out improvements and new features over the following weeks and months.”
