Secret Sounds half-heartedly regret to announce that Zulu Winter will be postponing their Australian tour. Half-heartedly, as they have a bigger plan in store. After witnessing their scorching live show at SXSW, the Secret Sounds promoters have decided to keep Zulu Winter up their sleeve for a special Australian debut performance at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS this year.
Zulu Winter will be making good use of their now ‘spare time’ in April, with their international schedule ramping up off the back of their performances in Austin. They will be heading to Europe where demand continues to increase from promoters, fans and press. After hearing rumours of their incredible live show, the likes of Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons and Kaiser Chiefs all made it down to catch separate Zulu Winter SXSW shows. It is little wonder that Zulu Winter are amongst the hotly tipped bands in the world right now.
The bookish lads from Oxford’s lead single ‘We Should Be Swimming’ have been turning heads across the UK and US with Q Magazine naming them amongst their “Essential Listening” on the eve of SXSW, NME ticking them off as a band to watch and previous tracks receiving a Pitchfork endorsement. It is testament to the year they have spent locked up in seclusion, creating and recording their highly-anticipated debut album, due out later this year.
Any Zulu Winter fans who got in early for tickets to their April show will be happily refunded at their point of purchase. Stay tuned for further announcements.
In the meantime, Zulu Winter’s debut album “Language” will be out May 11, 2012. Digital only single 'We Should Be Swimming' is out now.
