Hackney’s Zola Blood caused quite a splash in the blogosphere when they released their debut EP Meridian last year. Picking up plaudits from everyone from the Line Of Best Fit to 6 Music and the NME, their blissed-out synth sounds have seen their name bandied about as one of the ones to watch this year.

And for once in its life, maybe the internet has got it right. This September saw the release of Play Out, the band’s second EP, which brings a new depth and richness to the initial promise of Miridian. Recorded between London and Leeds, it features heavy use of vintage synthesizers, gasping beats and an electronic ambience that will no doubt be reverberating off many a music-lover’s walls this autumn.
