Brisbane by way of Gold Coast four piece Electric Zebra have been steadily building their profile on the Australian musical landscape off the back of their rapidly blossoming, 90’s alternative rock channelling sound. Their latest single, ‘Serpico’, is a head-turning slice of indie-rock excellence, featuring production credits by Bryce Moorhead, who’s also worked with Violent Soho and Walken.
It’s both crunchy and melodic, jumping out of the speakers off the back of a memorably insistent guitar motif, before launching into a thrill ride of fluid and fuzzy guitars, punchy drumming and a biting chorus. Two thirds of the way through and a searing lead break points the track in the direction of home. “I’m not on my way out” states singer/guitarist Keelan Sanders during the songs memorable chorus, and on the strength of ‘Serpico’, there’s little chance of that happening. Confident and catchy, ‘Serpico’ augers well for a big 2018 for the band.
