An electronica marvel hailing from East London's Hackney Wick, Zola Blood are Matt West (vocals), Ed Smith (synths), Sam Cunnington (drums), and Paul Brown (guitars).
The story of Zola Blood began in 2013, and they attracted attention with the speed of light thanks to only a few demos. The iconic group Talk Talk's manager, Keith Aspden, was impressed by Zola Blood and quickly signed an album deal. With the successive singles Grace and Meridian, they garnered interest from electronic music blogs and listeners worldwide. Recorded in a windowless room with only four walls, these tracks both reached number one on the Hype Machine chart. Their momentum caught the attention of Lauren Laverne, the world-renowned DJ of BBC Radio 6 Music. The release of their second EP Play Out/Pieces of the Day, which enriched their electronics with minimal techno touches, lead to even greater expectations for their first album. This expectation was more than fulfilled with the release of their self-published first album, Infinite Games, in 2017. Electronica marvels such as The Only Thing, Infinite Games and Heartbeat have gained Zola Blood a fan base in Turkey as well. And it's time to meet! Zola Blood is at Salon for their first concert in Turkey.
If you like any or all of; Moderat, The Acid, SOHN, Roosevelt, Bob Moses and Son Lux, you'll fall for Zola Blood's organic and dynamic electronics as soon as you hear it.
