Their work has seen them nominated for five New Zealand Film and Television Awards, winning Best Original Music in a Feature Film for Boy.

Moniker’s television work includes the second season of the much-lauded Australian-New Zealand-American co-production, Cleverman (Best original music in a series 2018 APRA Awards), 3 seasons of the Netflix cartoon Skylanders Academy, Moving Art (Netflix),  3 seasons of Wellington Paranormal and the acclaimed NZ/Germany co-production The Gulf.
