Zurich are set to release their debut EP ‘Small Wars’ on 21st September via Kestral Records.
The 5 track EP makes a bold statement from the outset, that has plenty of layers to the tracks, and a vibrant sound through each song. Bursting with melodic vocals and harmonies, there is also a new wave vibe to the music and although there are brief flirtations with a slightly lighter soundscape to the music at times, there is an underlying heavier rock tone to the EP.
As well as the forthcoming EP, the band have also released a single ‘Alone’ which is available to stream from their website and SoundCloud, along with a UK tour that kicks off this week (18th September).
