(8/10/14) Monty's Catch of the Day - Zero 7
Their sound has changed a bit from their early days, but Zero 7 still has it going on when it comes to chilled out electronic music. In the past year, they've released three singles that never quite made it on to a LP or EP, but the one thing that is obvious is the musical change that the duo (Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker) are going through. Today's catch is their latest track called "Simple Science", which is the first single off 07's upcoming EP with the same name. They are also making it very clear that the slower paced songs of their past like "Destiny", "In the Waiting Line", "Home", and "Futures" are indeed a thing of the past. Out with the old style and in with the new..."Simple Science" keeps with 07's trend of faster BPM's. But don't panic! The tempo may have increased, but they still know how to keep it smooth and laid back. One thing Zero 7 is also known for is introducing the world to incredible vocalist such as Sia, Tina Dico, and Jose Gonzales to name a few. Danny Pratt might be the newest addition to that list as he lends his vocal talents to "Simple Science". It will be very interesting to see how Zero 7 evolves from this point on, and I'm eager to watch them grow. Check out today's catch, "Simple Science (ft. Danny Pratt)" in the Soundcloud player below. Good things.
