Zinc – debut album from Galway trio
What you may need to know…
01. Galway post-rock/electronica trio Zinc have brought those bordering-on-arrogant grooves you ordered.
02. Forming in 2014, the trio quickly set about jamming out melodies and textures in equal measure, and empowered by a Galway City Council grant last year, put down their first full-length this year, with production from Solar Bears’ Rian Trench.
03. Streaming above is the band’s eponymous debut album, available now for download via Bandcamp.
04. Having launched the long-player with gigs at Galway Jazz Festival and the An Áit Eile weekender this past week, more dates are to be announced shortly.
Verdict: Sparse soundscaping meets unnecessarily fat bass and some seriously cocky percussion. Possibly one of the year’s low-key highlights.
