NO ZU: “Talking To A Stranger”

By: Jack Anderson

When you’ve got ten people in your band and your country’s facing major ecological damage, it can be tricky to focus on writing original music together.

Disco comes back to life on their rendition of Bryan Ferry’s “Sensation”, but NO ZU’s tribute to Oz-rock superstars Hunters & Collectors pulses with ’80s energy throughout their sleek, modern take on “Talking To A Stranger”!

That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
