Daily Discovery #27: Zuzu
Loud, brash and in your face. The punky debut from Zuzu has more attitude than a sullen teenager, with the charisma of school’s cool kids.
When releasing a debut you want to make an impact. Listening to Zuzu in the middle of mundane daily tasks, it will provide instant stimulus. With a new sense of determination, that list of emails will get sent and, hell, why not make a round of brews for the office?
Zuzu has captured the essence of pop-punk in her recent taster ‘Get Off’. With riotous guitars and a slightly chaotic feel, you slip easily into the track’s grit. Deserving to be played loud, the attitude and overall grunge of the record is that motivation so many of us desperately need. With a joyous chorus and well constructed, rough edged, harmonies the track provides a much needed distraction to the outside world. Sounding this good on a compressed Soundcloud MP3, you wonder how it must be hearing the record played live.
Zuzu is a project emerging out of Liverpool and after supporting the likes of Courtney Barnett on her UK tour and playing festival dates at The Great Escape and Tramlines, she’s already starting to gain a strong following. Whilst we currently can only obsess over one track uploaded to the fingertip world of the internet, we can use Zuzu’s taste in festival camp set up as a guide to whats to come. Judging by the size of the tent complete with camping popup sofa – I think it safe to say our punky futures are in a safe, but organised, pair of hands.
The track is currently available for download and is available via Hand In Hive as well as download on all the usual places.
