The Carnivorous Plant Society is five of Auckland’s brightest musicians combined.

With a spell-binding backdrop of custom animations penned by band-leader / multi-instrumentalist / genius Finn Scholes, they use a plethora of instruments to perform what can only be described as Mexican Fantasy Music.

Carnivorous Plant Society tell stories guaranteed to melt your mind in the most pleasurable way. Mexican mariachi mixes with spaghetti western; futuristic sci-fi blends with bizarre, spine-chilling nuances drawn from Stephen King novels. Together they coax life from an astounding array of instruments - trumpets, violin, vibraphone, tuba, guitar, synthesizers, keyboards, bass, drums, the odd vocal and even some whistling.

“What cleverness. What shining, uplifting delight…  I can't recommend this glorious treat highly enough. It's magic! Go!”
– John Campbell, Radio NZ

“An exotic, cinematic sound … full of rich instrumental flourishes and characterful phrases” - Lydia Jenkin

“They make a fantastic sound… Full of robot bartenders, scary sand-creatures in the desert. There’s a man with a spare face growing out of his shoulder which is a bit alarming… It’s fantastic!” 
– Grant Smithies
