Debut EP by Kolkota (Calcutta) band Zoo who mix electronic and rock and say they are inspired by the likes of Air, Radiohead & Massive Attack

THE PIT / KOLKOTA
this deliriously delicious EP Album is a treat for the ones who tap into electronica music, shoegaze or trip hop

TIME OUT DELHI
Zoo belongs to a newer breed of Kolkata rock bands that have been incorporating elements of electronica in their music. The name of the band, coined by drummer Rohit Nandi, offers a clue about its artistic outlook. “The world is like a global village and we’re part of a civilised society, or so we say,” said lyricist Bodhisattwa Ghosh, who plays the guitar and the synthesizer and does programming. “But our primal instincts are so strong that it comes out in acts of violence and crime, corruption – and we behave like caged animals. We live in a global zoo.” And Zoo’s songs, he told us, are a “reflection of true human nature in modern urban society”. “Metropolis” for example deals with the “emptiness in our lives”, while “Abusable Reusable” is about domestic violence.
