Good to jam on: New Years Eve
You may remember Zero 7 from the Garden State days when the British duo composed of Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker produced the hit "In The Waiting Line" that brought them much of their attention today. While that song was pretty stellar back in the day, their two new singles just released, "On My Own" and "Don't Call It Love" are seemingly from another world. The difference in their newly released might have something to do with two new vocal features on each single, featuring Tom Leonard on "Don't Call It Love" and Danny Pratt on "On My Own". Who knows, maybe it's just that enough time has passed that they've really been able to develop their style. Their breakout album titled Simple Things was released in 2001, so it's definitely plausible. Regardless of the reason, I definitely don't hate it. It's just super impressive to see a band come back after such a long dry spell (their last record was released in '09, but frankly I couldn't tell you a thing about it) with two new singles that are so strong and so different from what they originally started out with in '01. Apparently, the band has the capability of producing and recording their music on their own, which might also have something to do with their progression due to the endless amounts of time allotted for recording. One thing's for sure, I'll definitely be excited to see what comes out from these guys next. In the end, after much contemplation, I've decided that I really can't think of a better jam for your New Years Eve celebration, that is—unless you're into dubstep, which in that case you should be jamming the "On My Own" dubstep version posted below as you dance your way into the New Year. Cheers, mates!
