“In the End” released Friday 23rd July 2021 on Rock Noir

Bandcamp edition includes exclusive "Studio 54" disco version unavailable elsewhere

The Dead Zoo’s second single is an original composition mixing synthpop flavours into their sonic palette of post punk, shoegaze and dream pop.

Writer and singer Kaoru says “During the second lockdown I was listening to a lot of 80s stuff–Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Madonna, Japan, New Order. That poured into the conception of sound and melody for the song.”

She goes on, “the lyric is founded on my gender transition experience. The sense of keeping faith in an envisioned future and using that goal to overcome difficulties and stay on course; though I think it carries a more universal message of hope and optimism that I think we all need right now in these unusual times.”

The single is notable for being packaged with a host of remixes by artists from the UK alternative music underground, including such names as CLT DRP (Small Pond) and The Sly Persuaders (Roadkill Records).

“We were completely blown away by the creativity and variety of the remixes as they came in,” adds Somrata. “It’s great to have so many liberating perspectives on a piece that was conceived and mostly recorded and mixed during the very difficult winter lockdown. We can’t wait to share it with the world and to perform it live for the first time.”

The Dead Zoo London, UK

Founded in summer 2019., with a sound in parts reminiscent of Juju-era Siouxsie and the Banshees, Mazzy Star, a Kim Gordon fronted Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, the Dead Zoo balance equal parts melody and sonic assault and have been described as “luscious, layered post-punk” (Roadkill Records). ... more
