Zoe K and The Shadow Katz - You're Gonna Curse The Day     Blues/Roots, Soul 15/11/2011
In a climate dominated by manufactured talent, Zoe K and The Shadow Katz are a welcomed dose of old school jazz, blues, substance and style.
A song that screams 'I'm ready to stop watching bad television, eating chocolate and get back to my life' with revenge of course. This is an up beat soul, rhythm and blues inspired track that will turn big burly daddies into sissy little girly girls.
