postmodern psychedelic rock

the Electricka Zoo, early 2017

Posted on Updated on


Next appearing at Fringe Bar in Wellington, Tuesday 28th March 2017, 8:45pm.  Free entry.

The Electricka Zoo are one of Wellington’s most intriguing new live bands, a bass/guitar and live electronica duo of Dave Black and the Digitator. They combine influences from EDM, punk rock, jazz, reggae, Balkan and Portuguese music into their own homegrown NZ sound.

Keep an eye and two ears out for their first album, coming soon.

In the meantime a vinyl-only 7″ single and collection of early (2015-2016) demos on Soundcloud are available.
