Album Notes
Genre: Nouveau Rock

Number of Band Members: 4

Sounds Like:
An indie rock clusterfuck of bluesy-art rock and Beatle-pop w/ theatrical harmonies and dashes of bluegrass

The house lights dim. As the curtain parts The Zou appears center stage. From the first chord struck, The Zou does more than entertain - they exude an amiable artsy-ness that is infectious and welcoming
yet uncomfortably heartbreaking. Powerful voices sing of impermanence, decaying relationships, urban alienation and falling in love with loose women.

They harmonize over crackling 60's tube amps, vintage keyboards, upright bass licks, and catchy, primitive drum breaks.
The Zou is classy. The Zou is intelligent, well crafted,
electrifying rock and roll.

With a three man writing team, and three part harmonies, The Zou have an oddly cohesive and unique sound woven through their debut self-titled album. The record features a slew of well written songs from pop anthems
like "Sleazy (love song for the shallow)" to more avant-garde, thought provoking tunes like "How to Build and H-Bomb", "The Boontown Blues" and "Honeygirl".

The crowd is on their feet...
and the show is just beginning.
