Xul Zolar

Tides EP

ASMARA

Released: 6th November 2015 | 4 track indie rock ep

The band was founded in Cologne in 2011 by Ronald Röttel and Marin Geier after they met at a local show at infamous Club Scheisse (engl. Club Shit) and discovered their mutual taste for bands like The Smiths and Talking Heads. They started writing their first songs after quickly gaining attention with their first DIY shows from local promoters (amongst them DJ and and Kompakt- affiliate Tobias Thomas) and built up a reputation for being one of the most exciting live acts in the country, which led to appearances at notable German Music Festivals such as Immergut Festvial, Appletree Garden Festival, Reeperbahn Festival and MS Dockville.

So far they released a couple of 7-Singles (sold out), the latest being their track Hex, which was picked up by several Indie-broadcasting stations and Radio-DJs like Klaus Fiehe (who is often referred to as Germany's John Peel) and made them one of Germany's most talked about new acts in the underground Indiemusic scene. After supporting Rangleklods for a couple of shoes in Europe this summer, the band has just finished up their first Tour all over Itlay (8 dates) & will be playing a Germany showcase tour in October including an appearance in Düsseldorfs famous Kling Klang Studios designed by the legendary KRAFTWERK.

Their debut EP (Tides/ 2015) is produced by Jochen Naaf (Polarkreis 18, Maxim, etc.) & Sven Ludwig (OK Kid).

It will be released as the first ever record through their own imprint & Jakarta Records Sublabel ASMARA Records.

So after picking myself up from the floor having heard the patient sonic evolution of 'Hex' for the first time, I was surprised to find that Xul Zolar weren't the young Oxford band I so readily assumed. Forgoing their native Germanic tongue for a softly spoken neutral English tone means that their labour can be loved across borders. www.crackintheroad.com
