ZAZA is the musical union of Jennifer Fraser and Danny Taylor, both west coast transplants who connected by fate in New York. The duo started creating textural loops and aural soundscapes, yielding strange ideas during the isolation of New York winters. Quite insular in the song-writing process, all the dreamy melodies, lyrics, and timbres are written about/for each other. The band describes their sound as "a love affair that feels like metal on metal". No strangers to their craft, Jennifer is a talented multi-instrumentalist who previously played in Teepee Records' stalwarts The Warlocks, while Danny is known for his close associations with Pains Of Being Pure At Heart while also manning sound for various bands and venues throughout NYC.
Already met with praise for their live shows from the NY press, ZAZA have been favorably compared to British dream-rock acts like Ride, Slowdive, and Cocteau Twins. However, to pigeonhole them as a late 80s/early 90s throwback doesn't do justice to how effortlessly their songs exist between hazy drones and sultry, melodic hooks. Psychedelic and radiant, the "Cameo" EP both challenges the listener while at the same time intimately inviting them in closer.
