Singer Bo Bruce and producer/musician Henry Binns of Zero 7 return on November 16 with their brand new EP ‘Tribal War’ on Pegdoll Records, the follow up to their acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘Bones of Man’.
Featuring three tracks, the hypnotic ‘Belly Up’, lead single ‘Treble Oh’ and the beautiful ‘Prisoner,’ ‘Tribal War’ is a compelling listen – an immersive fusion of 90s downtempo ambience and minimal electronica held together with Bo’s distinctive vocals.
“It’s a little darker and tougher than the album” say the duo. “Slightly less esoteric and ethereal. A lot has changed for us and the album was a year or so in the making. We had less time to stare at our belly buttons for this EP and that can sometimes be a very good thing.”
And don’t miss the stunning new video for ‘Treble Oh’ filmed on location in a deserted ex Ministry of Defence building near Weston Super Mare. Featuring flashes of Equador’s artwork by the artist Emilie Pugh, who has been the band’s visual inspiration since the start, this video is actually the first video Bo and Henry have filmed as Equador, with all previous videos being animated.
Bo Bruce and Henry Binns first met in 2013 whilst working on tracks for Bo’s top ten debut album and immediately hit it off as a writing duo. In 2015 the pair holed up in the Zero 7 studio, Henry being one half of that hugely popular Mercury nominated group, writing and recording the debut album by Equador. The album picked up strong support from fanbases of both artists and critical acclaim from the likes of Line of Best Fit, Clash, Crack in the Road and Beats Radio.
