Zola Blood have announced Play Out, the follow-up to their debut EP, Meridian. The Hackney four-piece recorded Play Out between London and Leeds; working with producer Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Ghostpoet, Darkstar) the band made full use of the vintage synthesizers at their disposal:

We wanted every sound on the tracks to be totally unique – we even put the drums through a modular synth.

There are times listening to Play Out that you may well find yourself of Wild Beasts but in truth this has a darker, glitchier, feel - something from far deeper underground.

Zola Blood are: Matt (vocals/guitar), Ed (Synth), Sam (drums) and Paul (guitar).

Play Out will be released on Pond Life Songs on September 4th. Zola Blood play Secret Garden Party this weekend.
