Trasmission Music Group with @We Broke Free presents: Zibra (live)
Thursday 29th January @ Sixty Million Postcards, Bournemouth – FREE ENTRY
Fresh off the back of their energy-fuelled debut track Heartache, newcomers ZIBRA have recorded their own version of DJ Tomcraft’s 2002 hit Loneliness. The London band have once again delivered a raw DIY visual to accompany the track. The video, which also features snippets from recent UK shows, was made by the lead singer Sam, who sourced everyday materials such as strapping a camera to a remote control car to bring his vision to life. The band has also announced a select run of regional tour dates in the UK for early 2015.
Londoners ZIBRA turned their love for taking electrical objects apart to re-arrange and put them back together again, into honing their unique sound and making their own synths. VHS is ZIBRA’s go-to format for their music videos. “It’s easy to use de-funked equipment that looks better, and gives an effect that can’t be re created with modern technology. It’s also cheaper and easier to source”- says Sam. Citing musical renegades such as Blur, Depeche Mode and Elvis Costello as references, the band are currently in the studio working on new music with Simon Katz (Youngblood Hawke, Digitalism, Chiddy Bang) and Mark Ralph (Clean Bandit, Years & Years).
Plus Support from
The Arrivals (Portsmouth)
March 2014 when 4 fresh musicians, or what ever you call them, meet and played for the first time in a small studio in Gosport.
They individually draw influences from all over the place, and I mean everywhere. They focus on writing tracks, not a set, not an album, tracks. As in each one distinctively differs from the last.
Like psychedelic indie house. Or something.
