2015 has seen one-half of the band’s original lineup in Ashley Bundang (Totally Mild, Sui Zhen, Ciggie Witch) and Dove Bailey (Scotdrakula) re-assemble with a new direction, though very much the same manifesto.
Despite boasting a brighter, more pop-inflected sound, Zone Out are no less fittingly titled.
Debut single ‘Inside’ is dream-pop at its slow-burning best: fragile in nature, yet full-bodied in sound; each strum of the guitar and croon of the voice drips with reverb and bursts with charm.
Bundang’s lilting vocals paired with Bailey’s jangly guitar-interplay recall Teen Dream era Beach House (which is no mean feat in itself), whilst a syncopated beat and swirling synth pad draw stronger comparisons to their more electronica-influenced neighbours, Yumi Zouma.
‘Inside’ is now available to stream via Soundcloud and for purchase via Bandcamp. A 7” record release through Deaf Ambitions is also set for later in the year.
