Zola Blood, the latest act to emerge from the much-loved and revered Pond Life Songs, announced their arrival this July with the release of the hugely ambitious Grace. The band became the 4th most blogged about artist on the Hype Machine and Grace hit #16 on the chart. The London-based 4-piece are now aiming to build upon this breakthrough success with their debut EP Meridian.

Developed over a year in a windowless Hackney Wick studio, Zola Blood’s sound is minimal and textured, with intricate arrangements and meticulous attention to detail. The Meridian EP serves up waves of ambient electronica and bubbling synths, interspersed with reverberating guitars and delicate vocals that draw you into a nocturnal soundscape of soulful rumination.

On the Meridian EP, Zola Blood display both a fervent appreciation of the subtleties of electronic music and a loyal bond to melody and songwriting. The band’s distinctive sound is a testament to Pond Life’s passion for bold and inventive new music.

Zola Blood are set to release their debut EP Meridian in October, with their first live show at London’s Shacklewell Arms on the 9th October. Both physical and digital releases will be available on Pond Life.

Zola Blood was born in October last year and are Matt (vocals/guitar), Ed (Synth), Sam (drums) and Rob (guitar). | |
