Years ago, the alternative music scene was a key genre in the music industry, with a very “colorful” music scene. The main goal was, that these bands were danceable and did hard music (RATM, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BEASTIE BOYS, etc.). In the last couple of years most of the alternative music was not really groovy and the songs couldn´t be used for the club scene, which is an important promotion tool. As music mags don’t sell really well in these days, the club scene is more important than ever. ZE GRAN ZEFT is jumping in these footsteps. The band is doing a fresh sound based on the songwriting of the early days of alternative rock. A mixture of metal, hip hop and electronic music.
