It’s NZ Music Month and the Herald has partnered with NZ On Screen to bring you a music video of a classic New Zealand song every day of the month. Today’s flashback is the number one song that helped Peking Man to dominate the 1986 Music Awards.

Today's Music Month Flashback is Room that Echoes by Peking Man.

Peking Man's career peaked in 1985 with the release of this song, that became a number one hit and saw the band dominate the 1986 Music Awards.

Directed by John Day, the surrealistic video features animated computer graphics of the afore-mentioned room that echoes, slowly building wall by wall and tracking against a background of stars.

Singer Margaret Urlich is the only band member present, appearing as a lone silhouetted
figure dancing across a checkerboard floor.
