RELEASES NEW EP // BELIEVE

15th September,2014

Following the success of his debut EP Alien Monday that gained support at Radio 1, BBC 6 Musicand XFM, 19 year old multi instrumentalist and electronic wunderkind Ted Zed is excited to return withBELIEVE, a brand new two track EP set for release on September 15th, through BMG.

Having previously featured as the Guardian’s New Band Of The Day (26th Feb 2014),and Record Of The Day (7th May 2014), Ted Zed recently performed at the   Secret Garden Party in July, having already showcased at The Great Escape and Calvi On The Rocks festivals earlier in the year.

The new EP features the powerful lead-single Believe. With its rocking bass-line and soaring riffsBelieve has a real uplifting feel; it is as Ted Zed suggests, about      escaping into the wilderness and living off the land…It’s got a very positive message.”

Hailing from Somerset via Saturn, and otherwise known as Edward Griggs, Ted Zed is a 19-year-old songwriter and producer, who has succeeded in creating his own unique brand of “electronic rock’n’roll”.  Hailed as a Todd Rundgren-like genius by Club NME, who gave him his own monthly residency last year, the band kaleidoscope through musical influences with a flick of a plectrum, whilst producing a sound that is entirely their own.

The Guardian’s Paul Lester has described the second track on the EP Bass Drum, as a combination of Hendrix thunder and Bolan boogie with Rundgrenesque synth squiggles and an almost defiant air of spiritual uplift”.

Having been discovered by renowned producer Dan Carey aka Mr Dan (Hot Chip), this led to a deal with BMG and working with Elliot (Bloc Party) James and Martin “Youth” Glover. The EP features an extended remix from Elliot James alongside a Filthy Lips Bass Drum remix.

 Ted Zed’s live shows are impressive and full of energy; you’ll find Ted triggering andmanipulating pre-recorded sounds, samples and video projections, while providing live guitar and vocal; resulting in a psychedelic mix of pop, rock and electronica that couldn’t work better.
