Founded in 1972 in Auckland, New Zealand by Brian Timothy Finn and Phil Judd; Split Enz was best known for the breakthrough international single "I Got You" from 1980. Their sixth studio album, Waiata (also known as Corroboree in Australia) was released in 1981. Waiata is defined as a Maori song. The Waiata’s album cover art was produced in three different color combinations: Black/Pink/White, Green/Gray/White and Lilac/Gray/White. The album cover art for Corroboree was Black/Brown/White. After disbanding in 1984, two former Split Enz members, Neil Finn and Paul Hester, along with Nick Seymour formed Crowded House.
