Zola Blood is a four-piece indie pop band from London, England. Hailing from different areas of the country, they met in East London's Hackney Wick in 2013, and with some rough demos quickly caught the attention of Talk Talk manager Keith Aspden. They have been working together since.
Zola Blood’s first recordings emerged from their windowless rehearsal room in 2014. Their dark, rumbling debut "Grace" garnered interest from blogs worldwide and was quickly followed by the minimal "Meridian", which struck a more euphoric note. Both tracks reached the top of the Hype Machine chart. Reflecting the band's love of club music, "Meridian" was remixed by Berlin producer Applescal, introducing the electronic pop act to a new audience. They released their first EP, Meridian, in October 2014.
In 2015, the band teamed up with Richard Formby and released the single "Play Out/Pieces of the Day". They established a richer and more layered sound, experimenting with modular synths and outboard gear in an intense and lengthy studio session spanning south London and Leeds. The single earned them a late-night slot at the Secret Garden Party music festival in the summer of the same year.
