With the sounds of the past decade echoing through their songs, and hints of what tomorrow’s indie scene might be like, Zulu Winter has been penned as the next up-and-coming Vaccines, Two Door Cinema Club, or Snow Patrol. Impressive enough, especially when you realize they’ve been around for less than a year. With Henry Walton on guitar, and Dom Millard on keyboards, it leads to an eerie and enveloping melody, combined and met with Will Daunt’s crystal-clear and penetrating vocals.
Zulu Winter have already released Languages, their debut album. Independent Magazine listed them on ”Music One’s to Watch”, and they also appeared on BBC 1 Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World.” They are now about to embark on as supporting act for the sold-out of Keane tour.
Turns out they’re also a little bit nerdy. They’re the type of guys who could tell you what avant-garde pianist is in fashion now. They are fans of French literature and theatre, and cite Dick Hyman and T. S. Elliot as influences. But all this leads to a fresh new look at indie rock. With singles “Silver Tongue”, “We Should be Swimming”, and “Never Leave,” they pack more bite than many of the band’s contemporaries.
