Haven't been following this band too closely, but how is it? And why did they go all the way to New Zealand to record?
His debut EP was great, one of my favorite releases from last year. I'm pretty sure Zac has been going to NZ quite a bit since he left Paramore. Maybe he thought it would be a great place for inspiration when it came to writing the album.
their ep is awesome. i saw them open for paper route this summer in houston @ fitzgeralds and they were totally badass. it wasn't until this very article that i found out he had been a part of paramore in its heyday. so definitely give it a listen. if you need to preview it, it's on spotify.
I'm glad that he didn't abandon that project, I was sure that a lot of people thought the EP was boring - as for me it was perfect, I really liked the sounds and everything in those tracks. Definitely worth checking out, and I'm excited for the LP.
