Zola Blood are a London based four-piece, producing electronic beats from their studio in Hackney Wick they have truly mastered their attention to detail. Having only got together in October of 2013 Zola Blood works on a sound that is quite refined with a nod to minimalism. Their broody tunes with airy vocals and ambient synths make for the perfect texture to each track proving this is only the beginning for Zola Blood.
With their debut show at Shacklewell Arms in East London selling out within a week of tickets becoming available they are definitely a band to keep your eye on. ‘Meridian’ is Zola Blood’s debut EP which is available now through Pond Life Songs. The four-track recording lends itself to a complexity that is obtained in such a carefully constructed way. With influences from electronic greats including Jon Hopkins, Trentemøller and Caribou – Zola Blood’s debut track Grace proves the bands unique aesthetic and shows they are working with a certain idea and direction in mind. For anyone in London next month don’t miss out on Zola Blood’s next show at The Lexington.
