THE ZOMBIES:

Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, two true stalwarts of classy English pop, have reunited after three decades under the moniker of their former outfit, The Zombies. Their reunion has been enthusiastically embraced by the public, thanks to a hot band, some superlative new material, and a stage repertoire that draws heavily upon their much-cherished catalogue of Zombies and solo hits.

In their day, the Zombies were one of the few English bands of the 1960s that enjoyed true global popularity, with two American number ones, chart records throughout the rest of the world, and a deep and lasting affection for their music. For instance, in early 1967, at a time when their career had almost ground to a halt in the UK, the band played to crowds of over 30,000 in the Philippines. And ironically, right after the band split, their final single “Time Of The Season” quickly became their biggest record – US radio plays for the latter song recently passed the four million mark. The Zombies’ first two American singles, “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No,” also remain two of the most-heavily spun vintage hits on American classic-rock radio.

But beyond the statistics, the Zombies had several remarkable attributes that set them apart from other artists. The sheer consistent quality of Rod Argent and Chris White’s songwriting is rivaled only by Lennon and McCartney. Building upon the standard R&B and rock’n’roll influences, the Zombies introduced class and sophistication into a genre not noted for either, and in the most natural, unselfconscious way possible. And the songs were lent an extra dimension by the voice of Colin Blunstone, widely acknowledged as one of the finest singers Britain has ever produced. Rod Argent’s keyboard work is regarded as some of the most accomplished and inventive in rock. The Zombies’ canon belongs on the same shelf as the other major players of the mid-1960s such as the Kinks, Yardbirds and Animals; from their debut “She’s Not There” onwards, there was never at any point a drop in quality. The Zombies’ records are some of the best produced and distinctive in all pop music. The Zombies' website

 

ET TU BRUCÉ:

Et Tu Brucé, the English quartet whose debut album Suburban Sunshine has already emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed releases, is set to return to the United States in late August for a second American tour this year.

“Touring America feels like home to us,” says frontman Jamie White, who founded the band in 2010 with fellow singer-guitarist-songwriter Matthew O’Toole and brothers Craig and Darryn Bruce, who play drums and bass respectively. “Being somewhere where people aren’t afraid to engage you has been a revelation, and we feel like we’ve already made a lot of new friends in America.”

The London-based foursome has already stirred up considerable critical acclaim and substantial fan interest on both sides of the Atlantic. Suburban Sunshine has been met with upbeat reviews since its U.S. release in June on the SonaBLAST! label, winning such significant honors as an Album of the Week notice by New York Daily News critic Jim Farber.
