Zara is an electro-grunge-rock band from South London. Sarah who fronts the band is part-vampire, and was very flattered to be called a “female Bowie” on more than one occasion. Clamor, an awesome guitarist hailing from Germany, grew up with Trio and Kraftwerk as influences. Zara began three years ago making odd covers of Gary Numan songs and soon branched out into original material. The sound is compared to Sonic Youth, the Kills, Nirvana, the Pixies and Blondie (Sarah hates that comparison)!
The Big Bluff is a Rock’n’Roll & Blues duo located in North West London. The band consists of Ilya Krumins guitar & vocals, drummer Matisse Tazans and, if Quentin Tarantino was a musician, he would be the bands double-bass player. The group has a raw and aggressively played blues and rock’n’roll sound which draws heavily from Americana genres and artists like Elvis and Dylan. Their compositions look like an armed, five-handed native american wearing a black suit. The Big Bluff is a kind of the band you want to see live as the powerful, soulful and blasting performance is group’s main trump.
