Oxford based Zurich have just released their eagerly awaited debut EP Small Wars and Ralph was quick to give the single release from it, Alone a spin on his Radio KC Indie Show recently.
They're described as post-punk with more than a smattering of eighties electro, which I feel they've managed to give a fresh twist.
Zurich is comprised of, Adrian Banks on Bass/Vocals, Chris Gillett on Guitar/Vocals and Leigh Taylor on Drums/Samples
Alone has already drawn Zurich to the attention of Fresh On The Net with Tom Robinson drawing the conclusion that they're the result of Simple Minds having consumed Big Country and Echo and The Bunnymen.
For my part, I'm getting shades of Depeche Mode overshadowed with New Order and Tears For Fears.
It's a very assured piece of work for a debut EP but hardly surprising as Zurich have had award winning producer Gary Stevenson working with them.
