Zoax release new video ahead of EP launch
It’s only just over a week until Zoax drop their new EP Is Everybody Listening, and so it seems about the right time to drop a new song doesn’t it? Yeah, I think so.
Track 4 from said EP, “Zero Point Seven” was actually premiered on the Radio 1 Rock Show a couple of weeks ago, but Rock Sound have today premiered the accompanying video; have a look:
Seems it’s already popular on the live circuit; vocalist Adam Carroll says:
Zero Point Seven is easily the most fun song for us to play live, we wanted to capture that in the video. Since we started playing it, the audience have been going crazy for it. Always a good sign for a song just about to be released don’t you think?
The track itself is, barring the sedate opener “?“, the shortest track on the EP, and carries the kind of pace you’d expect for that. It’s light and upbeat from the off, but carries an anxious undertone at times that threatens to burst at any moment, and by the end it’s got more than a little edge to it.
The video itself is an amalgamation of footage from recent shows – most likely from their year-closing tour with Baby Godzilla – but it really doesn’t do them justice; they’re so much fun, and a few shots of them bouncing around, plus Adam standing on bar-tops (he does this a fair bit), is only the tip of the iceberg.
The EP’s first track was debuted at the end of last year, and promised great things from Zoax’s second outing. “Lonely Souls“ is a real earworm, and thankfully this new tune confirms the excitement levels for this record are justified.
