Z*L are a rock band unlike anything happening in the current indie rock landscape. Formed in 2011 with members who cut their teeth in such popular Boston bands as The Ghost Of Tony Gold, Rock City Crimewave, Vera-Go-Go, and Slim Jim And The Mad Cows.

Their self-titled 2013 full length debut is packed with their signature style; a combination of fuzz and reverb heavy surf guitar and haunting subject matter. Z*L’s beautiful yet quirky harmonies, dark lyrics, driving rhythm, and energetic live shows got them immediate attention at home in Boston and drew comparisons in as wide a range as the Jesus and Mary Chain, X, Pixies, Dead Moon, Joy Division, and Mudhoney.

While moving beyond their influences, Z*L have created a sound and style that is original and recognizable as their own while still performing in the great tradition of power-psych rock and roll.
