Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


“This New York-based quartet plays dark, tuneful electronic music that lands them somewhere between Trent Reznor and Massive Attack. They pull off that oft-sought-after but rarely achieved mix of electro-industrial ambience and catchy hooks.”

“The album is a prismatic rainbow of electronic soundscapes, thought-provoking lyrics and ethereal vocals whose melodies and sounds steer music to a higher level of consciousness. The album will give you a vision and place you in a song world that mirrors the chaos and beauty of real life. If you enjoy artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Olive and Portishead, then I encourage you to experience the world of Zenen.”

“The swirling of the keyboards, the bubbling of the bass, will make you think something is about to cut loose. It’s all about the tension. Cool stuff indeed.”

“They combine rock, pop, electronic, that flirt with dark atmospheres. But its greater approach to song structure could locate them as goths with beautiful pop edge and haunting melodies and atmospheres.”

“The tracks follow one another around opposing sensation, around calm and anarchy; the result of this musical exploration is flourishing and pleasing. An album to discover, a group to follow.”

Bio

One of New York City’s most consistently inventive and unpredictable live/electronic hybrids, ZENEN are perhaps best described as a kind of controlled experiment or interactive sound environment-- it’s a process, they’ll tell you; it’s an ongoing process of forcing different elements to interact, of bringing together an incredibly diverse range of influences, writing styles and personalities and seeing what kind of collective creative alchemy they can work together on stage or in the studio. Their studio creations Experimental Situations (2002) and States of Mind (2004) appropriate freely from various genres, using trip-hop, dub, industrial, noise and rock elements as the raw material for wholly original and elegantly constructed designs.

To describe ZENEN as the sum of their respective credentials and influences only tells half the story. It is perhaps better to describe them as the sum of all the various angles at which their backgrounds, influences and personalities intersect with one another when they close the door, power on their gear and start producing sounds. Whatever it is, it is a slippery, multidimensional entity that is in a constant state of flux and evolution-- it can scare the hell out of you, or it can lull you into a meditative dreamlike semi-consciousness, or it can make you scratch your head and wonder "how exactly did they do that?" Whichever way, you’re in for quite a trip.
