While they’re a post-rock trio, this Christchurch band sometimes go completely beatless and did a whole album of drifting guitar-led drones recently.

Yeah, so Like Home, A Little (2023) is undeniable ambience, presumably from Distance’s guitarist – though maybe their bassist and drummer contribute to this one in different capacities. There’s a bit of piano in there, for starters…

Other releases are largely heavy instrumental rock, but the beatless moments come through from time to time.
