Zenizen Play Baby's All Right 8/30

Zenizen Play Baby's All Right 8/30

Zenizen is such a perfect 2017 listen, we can't believe that they haven't blown up. Soulful vocals by lead Opal Hoyt maintain the sweet spot of R&B that manages to blend an original tone with smooth scales. Backed by charming keys and at times unpredictable beats, all these elements make this group such a timely combo. But Zenizen is not that young. They've been doing this for years now. With yearly singles "Coldwood," Fiver" and "No Contact" released since 2015, they've been working on their jazz-infused music for a while. Like most good things, they only get better with age. "Australia" their 2017 release and first EP, is their most confident work yet. Listen to the three tracks on this new EP and take the time to enjoy "Expanding," a Rihanna-esque heartbreaking pop song, especially. See Zenizen at Baby's All Right August 30th. -Allie Mille
