Zaga Zaga - s/t

Hello, les! Last week, I received an e-mail from Ben, who gladly asked me to review the most recent release of his band: Zaga Zaga. This is a four-piece band from Israel and play post-hardcore. They have released so far a 2-songs demo (2014), a 4-song EP (2015) (this record also included the demo songs) a split with mexican post-hardcore band Joliette (2015), a tape that compiles all the previous records named Year One (2015) (you can find here a pretty neat cover to Charles Bronson's classic song Youth Attack) and this s/t (2017). Regarding the sound, their influences range from different 90s classics such as Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, Mean Season and Jawbox but with a modern touch. The instrumentation and musical execution is fast, complex and precise. Even some songs remained me a less metallic version of Converge. Pretty cool. Also, the lyrics are short, abstract and straight to the point treating different themes about our "modern lifestyle". Lastly, I highly recommend this record. Click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp, where you can listen to their music and support them. It's worth it. And, I do hope in the near future getting more material of bands from Israel. If they're as good as Zaga Zaga, I'd be really pleased to review them. If you want to get a review of your band, you can go and check the Disclaimer section out, where you can find the ways for contacting me. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!
