Familiar Ground | Interview with Zooni

  • Describe your sound in 3 words

Nice pretty nice

  • Your music emphasizes its atmosphere. What comes first in your music? Lyrics or music? Tell us a few things about your creative process.

The music comes first most of the time. Often the spark for a new song comes when we get together and jam away for a few hours. Then it enters the demo phase – where we add our parts and shoot ideas around over the ether and at some point along the way I’ll add some words. 

  • What is your favorite album of the past year?

Crack Cloud – Pain Olympics

  • Do you prefer writing music or performing live? What would be your dream performance venue?

I think probably writing music but having not played live for 6 months I do really miss it! 

  • The Brighton music scene is considered very influential. What makes this music scene so rich and how do you relate to it?

I think it’s just that everyone is very friendly and inclusive that makes the Brighton music scene so much fun. It’s probably bigger than I give it credit for but I always expect to see lots of familiar faces when going to a gig in Brighton, which is really nice.

  • If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

More million dollar advances for making records like the good old days. Not really I think the new more democratic, anyone can record and release music, way that the music industry works is grand. I’d like to see more atmospheric, alt-rock in the pop charts though.

  • What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?

The Zodiac. Classic thriller magic.

  • One last thing we should know about you?

We almost called ourselves Mad Javelin 

  • Thank you!
