Brand new UK trio Zibra just got off of the road supporting one of this year’s biggest bands, Years & Years, and in a couple weeks they’ll be playing a headline show of their very own in addition to supporting fast-rising band Coasts. Before that happens, though, they’re unveiling a slew of ’90s covers one hit at a time, which will eventually all be bundled up into a mixtape.
Their latest offering from that collection of tunes is ‘Better Off Alone’, the massive hit from Dutch eurodance project Alice Deejay (who now go by Alice DJ, as they just reunited last year). Although they were only around for three years in their prime, ‘Better Off Alone’ went platinum in the UK and hit the charts at #2. With stylish haircuts and synths they created themselves (frontman Sam works at a synth repair shop), they put a modern experimental spin on the dance hit that still retains its accessibility while adding some of Zibra’s left-of-centre pop sensibilities.
Zibra’s brand new release EP1000 just came out today, and you can stream it on Spotify or pick it up on iTunes at the link below!
