"On Elephant on a Mousehunt, the guys meld grinding guitars and powerful drum and bass beats with harsh, in-your-face lyrics that don’t take long to get the heart pumping."

-R. Shemanski, January 2009 - Electric City


"Zelazowa is a tsunami of Rock in the purest sense of music... Elephants on a Mousehunt is a 4-star album and deserves your attention." -MUSICTAP

-February 2009 - MUSICTAP


"Elephants On a Mouse Hunt is an intense burst of post-punk joy. Strap yourself in and let Zelazowa take you on a ride." -SNOB'S MUSIC

February 2009 - SNOB'S MUSIC


"Most definitely well on the way to being the next sound of young suburbia." - MIDWEST RECORD

February 2009 - MIDWEST RECORD


“Zelazowa are one of those "next big thing" rock bands - one of the rare ones that deserve the appellation.” - Anonymous - Whatzup - Fort Wayne, IN


“Zelazowa has been enjoying growing word-of-mouth buzz through good old-fashioned hard work — namely a tour schedule that lesser bands might consider masochistic.” – Aaron Burgess - Riverfront Times - St. Louis, MO


"Akin to all great bands past and present, this Philadelphia quartet has honed their craft on the road. After nine months in the trenches it's no surprise that this blistering EP exudes the vehemence of a live performance." - Tom Semioli - Amplifier Magazine


"Grungy, fuzz infused post-rock is the order of the day here, and I’ll have two to go please... [Zelazowa] mix up a healthy bevy of frenetic riffage and good old fashioned melodious rock’n'roll." - THE 405 - The 405


"45 minutes of blistering post-punk catharsis that will either leave you speechless from exhaustion or have you considering that this might just be the musical love child of the Mars Volta." -DELUSIONS OF ADEQUACY - Delusions of Adequacy


"Well endowed with rock aptitude... an alternative-rock force to be reckoned with." -PASTE PUNK - Paste Punk

Over the course of the past few years, the Philadelphia-based band ZELAZOWA has been a study in what can be accomplished when armed solely with sheer willpower and determination, taking on the challenges of operating as a national band into its own hands with a steadfast do-it-yourself ethic. Without a fancy record deal, without the help of management or any other kind of machinery pushing it forward, ZELAZOWA has scratched and clawed its way into the international arena, booking its own tours throughout 48 states and 16 European countries, achieving radio play on more than 200 stations across the U.S., and being selected as the featured artist in Sports Illustrated's 2011 Swimsuit Issue and video teaser for their song "You Say Love".
