“ …So rammed full of energy that it could probably step in should the national grid fail any time soon…” Sound of Confusion
“A slice of awesome electro that would fizz in your mouth if you took a bite.”- Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol)
“The Ed Zealous album delivers. It’s up there with the best debut records of the last 5 years. If you don’t love it then we can no longer be friends” – Phil Taggart -BBC Radio 1
Ed Zealous are a band with a big musical identity. They create their own vision of indie infused electro whose signature sound is a high-octane mash-up of casios, heavy kick drums and sizzling synths.
Taking influence from the likes of seminal legends David Bowie, Talking Heads and Pulp alongside contemporaries such as A-Trak, Boys Noize and TV On The Radio, the band kicked off 2013 by supporting Two Door Cinema Club, sharing the stage with Wonder Villains, taking part in Glasgowbury followed by the successful release of their debut single Medicines on Fierce Panda/ Fandango label. They have already been played and supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and Seattle’s KEXP amongst others, and are now preparing for the next big release.
Ed Zealous’ upcoming new single Diamonds For Eyes is filled with raw attitude and infectious energy. Since the track is produced by Eliot James, whose extensive body of work includes collaborations with Bloc Party, Noah and The Whale and Does It Offend You, Yeah?, one cannot expect anything less than full on sonic authenticity from start to finish. The band set aside the predictability of the widely known electro indie sound, and endure a mix of vigorous electronics and hooky vocal lines to their fullest.
Ed Zealous naturally inject a sense of youthful optimism and heroism into their sound and Diamonds For Eyes will be available for sale and download 20th January.
