Reliably informed

Zudz‘s propulsive EP Sum is a four-track masterpiece of fuzz in perpetual motion. I previously described Yellow Chariot as an absolutely gorgeous punch in the face of a track. But in the context of the EP, it opens a door to a really intriguing mix of explosive noise and delicate melodic moments.

Bound For Old Glory, in between bouts of wah-wah riffage, has some Abbey Road Macca-esque belted vocals. Richard Roll On Home has a 70s country blues rock feel, rolling over a 6/8 rhythm. The EP really broadens out the musical colours beyond the band’s self-professed ‘leftfield punk rock’. Zudz aren’t leftfield. They are a whole landscape painting of adjoining fields that make perfect sense together. This is a must-listen EP.
