Music Month flashback: Brother by Smashproof

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 features guest vocals from Gin Wigmore.

Today's Music Month Flashback is Brother by Smashproof.

The hit song is about Smashproof's South Auckland neighbourhood and how these hip-hop stars want it to change - crime and violence are not the only options.

It's an urgent message, delivered via a simple but powerful drive-by music video concept from director Chris Graham.

The clip made it into mainstream news media for a scene bluntly inspired by a high profile incident where a businessman stabbed a young tagger.

Husky-voiced singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore is the featured singer for the chorus.
