Biography

“spacey samba london future pastoral afro-funk”

Imagine Led Zep, The Meters, Joni Mitchell and The Beatles jamming in Brazil with Tropicalistas such as Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes - where rock ‘n’ roll, funk and classic pop get spiced up with a little samba magic - and you’re on the Zeep trail. From cosmopolitan London to inspirational Brazil, Zeep bring you music inspired by the attitude of the 70s when music was live, urgent, right-on, scruffy, funky and folksy.

Whilst Zeep echoes the quirkiness of their previous work as Smoke City, Chris adds that “Zeep is a more folky, more organic album than anything else we’ve done before”. The songs were mostly dreamt up in their home in North London from jam sessions over the last few years and Chris feels that being partners in life, as well as music, has influenced the vibe: “On this album Nina and I have just been true to ourselves, we are a family and this has influenced how we make music. The band is made up of our close friends, people we’ve known for years who are like family to us, and I think this is why the sound and the vibe is so good”. As the songs on the album took shape, Nina & Chris thought about their friends from Brazil who could help them realise their tales of love, life and the universe with the necessary sub-equatorial tropical heat, and so last summer they jetted off to Brazil to recruit their fellow Zeepistas.

    Para os amantes de smoke city, agora tem Zeep, um pouco mais soft e menos ground breaking do que Nina nos habituou com Heroes of Nature ou Flying away, mas mesmo assim muito bom. Zeep (Nina MIranda e Chris Frank)
