The D4

The D4 is a rock band from Auckland, New Zealand. Their music is released by Flying Nun Records in New Zealand and by Infectious Records in the UK.

The group was assembled by guitarists Dion and Jimmy, who put together a collection of songs and assembled a live four-piece combo during late 1998 and started playing at the Frisbee Leisure Lounge parties along Symonds St, followed shortly thereafter by inner city pub gigs.

The group's debut EP was released by Flying Nun Records in 1999 featuring the tracks 'Girl' and 'Come on!'. Their style is hard rock with a heavy emphasis on high-energy guitar solos.

After the success of the Strokes and The White Stripes, The D4 and fellow New Zealand garage rock band The Datsuns became a critical and popular hit in the UK.
