EXECUTIVE DECISION E.P
RELEASED JULY 7th 2003
“ZABRINSKI latch onto trip-hop, swarthiness and wide-eyed pop, proving it’s not just The Coral taking psychedelia forward” Q Magazine
“With their tremendous Warp-blurred, melodic middle-finger defiance ZABRINSKI will be hailed as the next chapter in a legacy of Welsh mavericks” NME
Welsh 5-piece ZABRINSKI have announced details of a brand new E.P, Executive Decision, to be released on Ankst records on July 7th. The E.P features three brand new tracks as well as the title track from last years Kaola Ko-Ordination album – an album that won ZABRINSKI plaudits across the board for its maverick mixture of skewed beats, nu-psychedelia and wide-screen pop and, at the tender (average) age of 19 saw them cited as being at the forefront of a new vanguard of ‘Cool Crymi’.
The three new tracks on Executive Decision see ZABRINSKI refining their sound further still, along with Koala Ko-Ordination they present a perfect introduction to this essentially schizophrenic outfit. Title track, Executive Decision with its upfront mixture of chiming keyboards, stabbing brass and nagging melodic refrain of “Do what you want / What you want to do” is possibly ZABRINSKI’s most accessible moment to date. Seal My Cave, meanwhile juxtaposes a blissful melody over a bed of electronic clicks, whirrs and sweeping strings, whilst the altogether more linear third track Idi Eide I, complements the forthcoming summer perfectly with its idyllic mixture of rolling, melodic bass and simple melody.
To coincide with the release of the Executive Decision EP ZABRINSKI have been asked by fellow countrymen and firm fans Super Furry Animals to play with them at their Bethesda Rugby Club show on June 21st and in Edinburgh on the seventh of August
