Yo…we’re SO stoked to share with you the full self-titled debut release by breathtaking new Indonesian hardcore punk band Zip.
The band has been hinting at greatness ever since they dropped little studio snippets of the recording and writing process. But this shouldn’t come as a shock when you realize who make up the band – Indra of Final Attack, Aditya of Frack, Reegi of Brave Heart, Bagas of Tarrkam, and Januar of Vague/Raincoat. With pedigree like that you KNOW this collection of music is not going to disappoint.
Today the full EP is streaming in all its 80’s inspired punk rock glory – all 9 minutes of it! “From a musical perspective, ZIP is heavily influenced by early 80’s Boston hardcore bands such as SSD, DYS to The F.U.’s. We fully recommend this to fans of class hardcore labels like Xclaim! and Discord,” states the band. Everything about the music certainly is a nod back to the 80’s era of hardcore, but it even in the recording/production that the band made sure it didn’t feel like a 2021 version of an 80’s band, but a band that could literally have been plucked from the ’80s and dropped in 2021. Even the frickin’ boot in their logo is ON POINT!
Go blast these jams now and share the fuck out of it with the world! Limited edition cassettes and 7″‘s are being released by Greedy Dust Records.
