L40 are an 8 piece band. L40, which is short for ‘Latitude -40’ indicates the latitude coordinate of -40 degree's, which on a map, shows you the location of their home, Rātana Pā. Rātana Pā is where the majority of the band members are from, therefore, the name ‘L40’ acts as a constant reminder of this. The Rātana Pā members were brought up playing in brass bands which gave them the skills of reading music and a broad understanding of all band instruments. They met the Wellington members whilst studying at the Whitireia School of Music, which has been the headquarters for many well known musicians and bands. This mixture of these multi-talented musicians gives the band a unique sound, great musicianship and the freedom to switch between instruments as they please. L40 have two singles for free download on their SoundCloud and have an album in the works. Be sure to stay up to date with them online /L40Music.
