WL//WH Track Of The Day: BILLY ZACH “Elite”

Track Of The Day Billy Zach

A tip from the good Toze, Billy Zach is the one-man-band moniker of a Hamburg-based German musician, fresh from releasing, in mid-April, his new EP “Shallow”, on vinyl and Digital, five tracks that delve deep into rock’n’roll and punk roots, channelling garage-punk, blues, surf rock and post-punk elements, wrapped in sarcastic and ironic lyrics, often with remarkable and fresh results of striking and urgent intensity.

The buzzing and breathless “Elite”, a sardonic rant over the ridiculous and shallow nature of sheeple wrapped in the mass consumerist society, speeds along noisy and burning energetic guitar riffs across powerful pounding driving drums and taut growling basslines with a glistening and hypnotic trumpet sheen running on top throughout, while frustrated, angry, slightly raspy snarls, brimming with misunderstanding and caustic disregard, offer mock congratulations.

An invigorating and infectious shard of garage/post-punk rampage.
