Following the success of their debut EP Orpheus last year, picking up support from the likes of Earmilk, Viper Magazine and Konbini, French duo ZER0 now gear up to release the upcoming EP and if this new track is something to go by, we’re ready.
Musically influenced by everything from Nirvana to 2Pac, Massive Attack to James Blake, it’s gone a long way, judging by the duo’s new track “1066”. A meteorite of a track, the allusions to the ethereal instrumental and scorching lyricisms, with the pair mixing in the creative streets of Paris it is a truly contemporary take on such classic flavours.
Speaking on the track, ZER0 state: “It is a glimpse within, that deals with countering the dark thoughts that swirl around our minds, with positivity, grit and determination. It switches drastically halfway and metamorphoses into its final form. This further illustrates the duality and contrast between the constant battles we face within ourselves and with ourselves.”
It’s also a marker of the serious credentials of the two friends. ZER0 tears open a hole in the scene and starkly make their claim as one of the most genuinely exciting acts this year.
