Electric Zebra

Recorded by Reuben Aptroot
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane, 19th July 2018

Electric Zebra are a band that formed in the Gold Coast out of  a couple of high school friends and a drummer they found on GumTree. After forming in 2014, the four-piece of Keelan, Daniel, Adam and Kesh have played consistently around Brisbane and Australia harnessing their energetic riffs and heavy drum stylings.

They have released two EPs 2016’s ‘Ambition’ and followed up with 2018’s ‘You’re Sinking’. They play with a high intensity with guitars turned up to the max, a pulsating rhythm section and a compelling vocal style. They are guaranteed to get your head moving and can build up into an almighty head bang within a few chords.

Turn the stereo up and get stuck into this set, recorded live at The Black Bear Lodge on the 19th of July 2018.

Sweater Curse have been on a bit of a crazy ride over the last 2 years and have put in the hard yards to be seen as one of the most promising acts in the country. They burst onto the scene in 2017 with a track called Fell Asleep which showcased their particular sound of indie rock, but while it was often imitated, this sounded fresh and goddamn exciting.

They are comprised of Chris on guitar and vocal duties, Monica on bass and vocals and Rei on the drums. They have backed up their buzz with an intense live act that has been refined after years of playing as much as they could. They were featured on major stages, bills and festivals around the country and have built an impressive following. They play a brand of indie rock that is engaging and gets you grooving but also makes you focus on the lyrics that you end up hanging on. The way the vocals intertwine and tell a story accompanied by really tight drumming and instrumentation you can see how they have consistently delivered on stage.

Their first EP came out on the 1st of March of this year 2019, and we can only expect good things from these local legends. They hit the 4ZZZ Carpark on the 30th of March 2018.
