Well this came out of nowhere! Renowned UK SynthPoppers, and one time band of Mr. Stuart Price, Zoot Woman unleashed a brand new single on an unexciting world this week. Taken from their long awaited, and mostly believed to be fictional, forthcoming new album Star Climbing it’s our first hint of what Adam and Johnny have been doing with their time away.
It’s very, very good. A SynthPop epic that flirts with an experimental attitude whist keeping things truly Pop based. The combination of sweet and catchy and abrasive has always worked well for Zoot Woman, and moreso here. The synths are dirty, grimy, and rough, but compelled to conform to a melodic Pop song. The beats relentless and pounding, but acting to drive the passionate vocal onward. There’s been a Zoot Woman shaped hole int he SynthPop world for a few years now, and this slice of noisy bliss will go some way to fill it.
