#317 Samuel Zasada – Lifelessly

Who’s ready for some harmonies and banjos? Oxford’s Samuel Zasada are happy to oblige with this track ‘Lifelessly’, taken from their new EP Winter’s End. With urgent, driving banjo riffs and meaty harmonies, the band very much fit the modern alt-folk template, but there’s also a certain off-beat twinkle which marks them out as a substantially different proposition to many of their contemporaries. It’s certainly music that demands your attention.
