Since the ‘birth’ of dubstep, chillwave and all the other (now defunked) dance orientated musical genres a few years ago, wading through the deluge of new producers and semi-professional knob twiddlers can be a bit daunting. But never fear – we can help! There is still gold to be found in them thar hills, and one such nugget is Zola Blood. The details are sketchy at the moment, but one thing is for certain, their/his/her (who knows?) new track ‘Grace’ is a swirling eddy of hypnotic rhythms and other worldly vocals, wrapped tightly in a rush of enigmatic synths.
The track has all the hallmarks of an accomplished producer, but also has the energy of youthful exuberance and an underlying nocturnal power to match. Zola Blood are currently working on a release in collaboration with a newly resurrected Pond Life Songs, who seem to have been jolted out of a 22 year hiatus in the face of this track. Listen to ‘Grace‘ below and you’ll see why.
