Zulu Wave create their own kind of high-energy, overdriven, fuzzed out sound. Loud. Frantic. Ever-changing. Despite a somewhat revolving cast of players, Zulu Wave have been able to ride a brand of sonically lush, ruminating avant-pop into the national spotlight. They were bright spots on the bills of the 2012 CBGB Music Festival and CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. If bands like Muse and BLK JKS stayed in the garage to craft honest, hard-nosed rock, then they might sound like Zulu Wave.
