Come Play With Me, the Leeds based singles club releasing split 7” vinyl is set to release the 3rd single in the series on 27 May 2016.
Described by Clash as ‘fast becoming an imprint to watch’ Come Play With Me’s latest single looks to continue the precedent it has set of highlighting the awesome diversity of great music coming out of the area with bands like Cinerama (The Wedding Present), Harkin (Sleater Kinney, Sky Larkin), Fizzy Blood and OFFICERS. The third installment of Come Play With Me will feature new tracks from ZoZo and Esper Scout.
Leeds’ ZoZo are a band that are hard to describe and tougher yet to explain… They sum up their music with this statement: ‘ZoZo will make you dance and ZoZo will make you think…’ They’re not wrong: powerful live shows, a cacophony of rhythm, sax, yelps, wails and words, ZoZo continually impress as they gig to an ever growing group of admirers.
Esper Scout are a rock band driven by empowering, characterful guitars and bass, passionate lyrical content and dynamic drums. Formed by childhood friends Kirsty and Sarah, who met bassist Rebecca as teenagers, the three began writing and collaborating together in various projects until a point of focus in 2011 when Esper Scout was born. In the 5 years since they formed Esper Scout they have constantly gigged, written & released their music through their own label Bomb the Twist as well as heading out on a UK tour supporting The Cribs. Both Esper Scout & ZoZo are members of Leeds DIY collective and rehearsal space Chunk. Esper Scout launched their track ‘Gaps in The Border Fence’ last week.
The single launch featuring both bands will take place at the Brudenell Social Club on May 26th, alongside some soon to be announced special guests. This free entry show has been made possible thanks to the kind support of Leeds Inspired.
