Good news from zero7:
Zero 7 have now completed their new album ‘When It Falls’ which will be released on March 1st 2004. The first single to be lifted from the album will be ‘Home’ released on February 23rd 2004. The single will also be available via download from this site from 12th February…so watch this space!
Zero7’s debut album Simple things is one of my favourite albums of all time. It is downbeat electronica, alternating between beautiful vocals and haunting instrumental tracks. It is groundbreaking, alive, flowing, complex. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform live in Copenhagen, and the joy they took in their music was plain to see. They have three different singers, and when one was performing, you’d find the others out among the audience, dancing with the rest of us, rather than chilling backstage. They seemed more like a club than a band.
It’s been a loooong while since Simple things was released, so I’m REALLY looking forward to the new album. In the meantime, if you absolutely can’t wait, check out Healing is difficult by Sia, one of their singers. This has more of a funk/soul feel, and Sia’s very characteristic voice suits the songs perfectly.
