The Electricka Zoo

The Electricka Zoo are one of Wellington’s most intriguing bands – a duo of live electronica by the Digitator, and Dave Black on bass and electric guitar.

Our 2017 debut album is available from Bandcamp, Spotify, Google Play Store, iTunes etc.

a totally original, mind warping album… I salute anyone that makes a whole album out of EDM post-punk avant-garde rock / jazz, reggae, Balkan, Portuguese music.” –

You can also hear a collection of our early (20152016) demos on Soundcloud.

We’re originally from Taranaki, and previously collaborated way back in 1999 as half of the DDPP quartet on The Marion Flow 

and Waiting for the Drummer

We started playing as a duo in late 2015 following an extended 16-year incubatory period. We made our live debut at the Performance Arcade festival in 2016, numerous Wellington gigs and an album in 2017, and rounded it off with a season in the New Zealand Fringe Festival in 2018.

With roots in alternative rock and electronica, The Electricka Zoo will leave you wondering if you should dance along, close your eyes, or just scratch your head and wonder how two people can produce such a wall of sound.
