"Small Wars EP"

Zurich has a sound which leaves you awash with welcome nostalgia and invention soaked freshness. The proof comes via debut EP Small Wars; five tracks of post punk and eighties electro pop bred temptation infused into a fiery rock heart. At times rousingly anthemic and in other moments warmly intimate, the EP is a compelling introduction to the UK trio, one which early on had thoughts moulding the assumption that the Oxford hailing band is heading towards to major things. - The Ring Master


“Imagine that Simple Minds ate Echo And The Bunnymen and Big Country for breakfast and you’re halfway there. Zurich will go far.” - Fresh On The Net - BBC Introducing Mixtape

"Small Wars"

Zurich are a three piece that sounds like five. The album is called “Small Wars” but these five tracks won a big battle and that battle is near perfection. The band has very carefully crafted five future masterpieces and were able to capture their live magic in an album and that is a rare and hard feat to accomplish. The hooks are ever present even when the band tone it down a bit on the title track and “Invisible Man”, which has my favorite hook on the album. From 2015 on the name Zurich will forever be more than a town. Mark my words! - Jammerzine


A new, upcoming band ready to fully blossom into being – the release could very much see them emerge from the shadows in style. - The Fix Magazine

"Small Wars EP"

Zurich have forged a fast and forceful foray, the style of which is cool and collected. Its passionate persuasion ensures that it doesn’t get dull or disinteresting, while its penchant for mixing industrious riffs with intense electronics means that it’s well suited to appeal to fans of alt-rock and electro alike. - Pure M Zine

"My Protocol"

The guys provide us with a sound that is uniquely theirs while also personally reminiscent of a great band out there, Interpol. They explore the hits and misses that come up in the adventure that we call life and from there create soundscapes that connect with the masses instantly. The song is a fine-tuned and passionate balance between old school rock and a modern approach in the genre that really connects with you. After listening to “My Protocol” you’ll know in your heart these guys are made for this and their name is bound to bring something electric to the music scene. - Wolf In A Suit
