Do you ever wonder what would happen if Led Zeppelin went home with the Baby Animals and Aretha Franklin after a wine mixer? That beautiful night would surely bring into existence a delicious love child named Zenith Moon.
Hailing from Melbourne, Zenith Moon bring a retro and classic rock fusion that draws in the best influences from that glory era, delivering raunchy female-fronted rock that harks the sound of European counterparts Blues Pills, Pristine and Forever Still.
Zenith Moon's latest single Gypsy continues the band's history of producing smooth, soulful indie rock. A perfect blend of charming vocal melodies and raw, energetic performances, The track suitably captures the band's artistic range through emotional intensity and skilful musicianship.
Their previous single, Going Under is a groove-laden, heavy riff-soaked tune topped by one hell of a vocal performance by vocalist Kahli.
Zenith Moon is the collaborative efforts of fretboard nomad Matt (guitar), astrologically colliding with Kahli (vocals) and Andie (drums). All three bring a different influence to the table: Kahli lifts smooth vocals straight from the late Mrs Franklin then smashes it with 70’s rock, 90’s RnB and modern pop, Andie brings the drum kit to the forefront with dizzyingly sensational rhythms spawned by progressive rock and jazz fusion, and Matt ties things together with soulful licks - his roots are grown all the way to depths of blues (with a scenic detour or two via Pink Floyd).
The one thing that unites them all is a motivating desire to express themselves as honestly as they know how. They’re here to lighten the mood, make you cry, make you dance, and most of all, make you nod your head up and down while you say “Mmmm, that’s the stuff.”
