London’s scholarly five piece Zulu Winter have been charming the ears off live audiences and critics alike, already being hailed as one of the most exciting acts to come out of Britain after only a handful of shows. Their unique brand of tribal pop has landed them a spot on a hoard of European festivals, a huge UK and European tour supporting Foster The People before they cement their name in tastemakers brains at SXSW in March. Check out all the hype:
‘Music that shimmers like a sky full of fireworks, we give it a year before enormodromes of voices are bellowing their epic choruses right back at them’
‘Celestial guitar pop with a macabre edge, they shine a light on eerie, shimmering art pop’
‘As statements of intent go, their debut single might as well be holding up a sign at the side of the road asking for a lift to Glasto’s Pyramid Stage’
‘Feet moving indie grooves destined to fill festival tents’
‘A stealth like hit of the year, their charms captivate’
Loud & Quiet
‘Carving a slither of a niche between tribal pop and post - Coldplay rock’
