SotD - Zuzu


Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he listens to Zuzu...

Format: 7″ blue vinyl

Side A: What You Want - a full-fat punk pudding of indie rhythmic gorgeousness. Super-powered female vocals slide effortlessly over upbeat, striking and solid instrumentation. Paramore meets Blondie, this easy-on-the-ear storytelling offers in-your-face honesty mixed with energetic passionate lyrics.


Side B: Get Off - chow down on some countrified vibes as powerful & fun vocals slip and slide over the top. Pop stylings merged with slightly dirty guitars, there’s a hint of Mutt Lange production and Bryan Adams lyricism here, and a voice redolent of early Joan Osborne at her finest. Bouncy, insistent and just what you need to boost your day.

Finyl Thought: astonishing vocals and thought-provoking lyrics with added glitz n glamour and bouncy-as-heck musicality
