EDITORS’ NOTES

On their debut album, London quartet Zola Blood create an intoxicating blend of ambient electro-pop that balances trance's hypnotic pleasures with the intimacy of Radiohead. The pulsating rhythms of "Heartbeat" and "Nothing" spin steadily and concentrically, as if they could go on forever. Throughout, frontman Matt West evokes Thom Yorke's weightless wails as he casts a silky cloud over glitchy beats ("Infinite Games"), while throbbing synths slink in and out of The xx’s moody, minimalist orbit ("Play Out").
