From their DIY headquarters on Waiheke,  Oyawa send in their lead jammer Nikki Ngatai as Chica.  Salacious and raunchy Chica leads us through the three minute roller derby flurry summoning the guides of Nico, ‘Military Rap’ Blondie and Elastica.

Self released, written, designed and produced, the single will be accompanied buy a self made, fish net burn of a video on release day.
