London/Brighton based Zooni emerged onto the scene with a modernised take on art-pop. Discovered by Mercury and award-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt J, Marika Hackman, Nick Mulvey), the band have dropped their debut EP which features the truly hypnotic single A Flat. Fusing influences from Nick Drake, Grizzly Bear, Radiohead and Portishead, the delicateness of the quartet will mesmerise you into tomorrow.
Piano led, the haunting vocals lead the track through a sort of darkness before uplifting the arrangement to a trip-hop like beat. Intriguing and refusing to be ignored, the fragile vibe of the soundscape is somewhat calming. Theatrical and honestly producing some of the most beautiful melodies you’ll hear for a while, A Flat is unlike anything else in the art world right now. Minimalistic while letting your imagination run wild, the layers that build of instrumentation creates a sort of spellbinding texture. An exceptional track that is anything but flat.
