The Zoup release ‘SYMBIOTIC’

The Zoup release ‘SYMBIOTIC’



Creatively adventurous Auckland rock band, The Zoup, have just released ‘Symbiotic’, the lead single and title track from their forthcoming debut album. Alternative rock fans will be able to check out the track via the band’s website and Facebook page, or download via iTunes and all other popular online music stores.

‘Symbiotic’ is characterised by tight, off kilter rhythms (which aren’t so familiar to such an accessible sound) and intricate, playful lead lines that dance around the powerful yet honest vocal delivery of lead singer Jaydn de Graaf.
With the frantic, weaving energy of ‘Symbiotic’, The Zoup display a convincing evolution in their sound, improving and building upon their previous releases in spades. The lead single hints at the exciting prospect of the forthcoming album which is the result of two years of pre-production and studio experimentation spent developing a set of songs that truly represent the collective essence of the band. Utilizing the skill set of producer / engineer Dave Johnston (Villainy, Stitches) to craft the project, The Zoup have emerged from their studio journey with a powerful sonic work of art that has vibe and energy bursting from the seams.

With the full album due over the kiwi summer of 2014/15, be sure to check out ‘Symbiotic’, a track that storms out of the gates, promising great things from the forthcoming record.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
