Zoot Woman release ‘Star Climbing’ on 1st September 2014 through Embassy One. First single ‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’ will be released on 18th August, with remixes from Michael Mayer, Radio Slave and Chopstick & Johnjon. British electronic pop trio featuring producer Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, Pet Shop Boys, Les Rhythmes Digitales and Jacques Lu Cont) and brothers Johnny (guitar, vocals) and Adam Blake (keyboards) met at school in Reading, England. Their debut album ‘Living In A Magazine’ (2001) was hailed as one of the most important forerunners of modern electronic pop music, with Hall & Oates/Pet Shop Boys infused singles such as ‘It’s Automatic’ and ‘Information First’ and their style led conceptual aesthetic. Zoot Woman went on to release two more albums ‘Zoot Woman’ (2003) and ‘Things Are What They Used To Be’ (2009) touring relentlessly whilst remixing artists including Scissor Sisters and Madonna under the name of Paper Faces. Fourth long awaited new album ‘Star Climbing’ is a significantly different offering, fresh and optimistic electronic pop with trademark suave vocals from Johnny Blake, written and recorded in four different studios across the UK and in Price’s L.A studio. “We felt the need to challenge our own style, to open new doors creatively. It is without a doubt my favourite Zoot Woman album. The title ‘Star Climbing’ is about the idea of reaching for something beyond what you know. ” (Johnny Blake, Zoot Woman) The first song penned for the album was ‘The Stars Are Bright’, a pulsating electro pop smash with double time beats and building synths, influenced by the sound of nineties rave clubs and an album mission statement: “We’ve changed the way we see the world”. 'Don't Tear Yourself Apart' is the first single from the album inspired by the need for hope when things feel dark (“When it all seems to bring you down don’t tear yourself apart, I can promise you better ways, we’ll be living in better days.”) It was recorded in a similar way to ‘It’s Automatic’, minimal music, simple song, written on an old Casio synthesizer and 909 drum machine. “It’s a song for when you're completely lost, but you've got someone telling you everything's going to be alright.” (Adam Blake, Zoot Woman) "We recorded Star Climbing over a three year period between our studios, working on songs and lyrics until we felt like we had found the albums direction. It is our most distinctive album to date, combining all our different tastes and styles into one." (Stuart Price, Zoot Woman)
Top Customer Reviews
then you could do little better than have a crack at Zoot
Woman's new album 'Star Climbing'. Producer Stuart Price's
affection for the eighties continues to be strongly evident in
these eleven new numbers. The spirit of bands such as OMD
and Ultravox seem to echo in the foundations of this fine music.
The energy is strong and the tunes are memorable and carried
well by guitarist/singer Johhny Blake's warm vocal delivery.
Top tracks would definitely have to include 'Coming Up For Air' with
its delightfully retro synth sound; 'Nothing In The World', an uplifting
anthem driven along by a powerful beat and Mr Blake's appealing
falsetto and 'The Stars Are Bright' whose nicely nervy juddering
arrangement delivers the project's most dance-friendly moment.
Crisp and clean and utterly addictive stuff!
After a few listens Star Climbing keeps growing and growing on me. It's one of those albums that you can listen to from start to finish - there's no fillers on here.
