Keep Austin Supersonic

Meet Austin’s spazz-mongering soothsayers Zorch. Formed in 2009 by Berklee College alum Zac Traeger and a gentlemen known simply as Shmu, the duo was already a devastating live force straight out of the womb, winning hearts and crushing minds in and around an already fertile music scene. Saturated in shimmering sci-fi sounds, pummeling percussive acrobatics, and a strong inclination toward solid hooks, Zorch’s noise pop places equal emphasis on both the noise and the pop sides of the spectrum. The band’s first recordings since their early demos, a new two-song single Cosmic Gloss/E.M.F. (no relation to the amazing Anglo jock jammers), showcases the more nuanced side of Zorch’s supersonic garage-damanged prog. Fans of BoredomsHoly Fuck, and Hella would do well to visit their music page for some free downloads.
