Sick of "overworked, limp-wristed pop-rock", Emily Littler and Billie Rogers formed Street Chant in 2009. After their debut album Means won the Critics’ Choice Prize at the 2010 NZ Music Awards, the band headed abroad on tours with The Dead Weather and The Lemonheads. Their long-awaited second album Hauora was released to acclaim in 2016, with lead single 'Pedestrian Support League' nominated for the APRA Silver Scroll. Street Chant announced their split with a farewell NZ tour in September 2016.
With its video filmed in a cramped Auckland flat, 'Pedestrian Support League' was the lead single off Street Chant’s long-awaited second album, Hauora. As the band play on, a psychedelic array of everyday kitchenware flies by in the background. The claustrophobic flat is appropriate — lead singer Emily Littler describes the lyrics as about “just your typical Kiwi shithole flat life filled with paranoia, depression and anxiety.” The album received critical praise upon its release, and the single was was one of five finalists for the 2016 APRA Silver Scroll Songwriting award.
