There’s something pretty exhilarating about the brio with which Zun Zun Egui attack their songs, whether it’s in their tightly wound instrumental interplay or the the staccato shock of Kushal Gaya’s vocals (that’s, “Sexy worm have you got the bird” in case you were wondering) they are an irresistibly energetic proposition. Their clattering, kaleidoscopic new single certainly delivers on the promise of early tracks like Praise the Waterfall Part 2, which we featured on these pages a few months back, and it’s great to see that they’ve been picked up by Bella Union, who are putting out their debut album in October.
If you happen to be in London on the 16th of this month then you could do a lot worse than to catch the Bristolians playing at the Dalston Roof Garden. As well as putting on what promises to be a pretty blinding show, the band will be screening the Kurosawa film Dreams after their gig. You can find the trailer below and details of the free gig here.
