Postpop pioneers Zkeletonz return to gigging inspired by nature after recording in Cornwall
Since performing live for us at one of our past gigs last September, colourful synth trio Zkeletonz have been busy developing a reputation as one of the UK’s most interesting, innovative and independent bands. On Sunday 19th August the band headline the Sebright Arms in London, a venue run by Vice magazine, with support from Jazz Mino. (Tickets available for free from Dice when booked in advance.)
Their singles ‘Don’t Cover It Up’ and ‘Always’ have been receiving strong support from BBC Introducing Coventry & Warwickshire DJ Brody Swain and they’ve spread their wings on the live scene at the Great Escape and Fringe festivals in Brighton, Ronnie Scott’s in Soho, and The Troubadour, where Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan both did their first ever UK gigs.
Musically the band mix diverse influences but early 1980s disco and current electro acts like Chvrches and Chromeo stand out. Razor sharp funk guitars cut confidently across beds of rich pulsating bass. Their iconic on-stage look, in green sparkly jackets, was first photographed by our very own Adam Goss!
Zkeletonz also self-produce their own music, which they call ‘post-pop’, completely from scratch. They recently escaped to the countryside to relax and get inspiration for new material, and shared a photo diary of their experiences with us giving a behind the scenes look at how they create, collaborate and produce their unique style of music.
