Zero 7 | EP3

Zero 7 has gone back to its roots on EP3. They’ve found and reconfigured that kind of sound they initially created back in 1997. Back when the duo’s remix of Radiohead’s “Climbing Up the Walls” brought them deserved attention and right before Air’s “Moon Safari” took off. After four official LPs, including the underground hit, “Simple Things” (2001), the band seemed try to easy themselves away from that female-lead style and back into the instrumental. EP3 is back to the moody, atmospheric Zero 7, but there’s also something darker, more spiritual and wise about these singles. Maybe that’s part of the reason they’ve opened the EP with a song tipping a cap to the name of François Truffaut’s “400 Blows”, a film about consequences and growing up. Follow Zero 7 at facebook. — David D.
