ZOWIE burst into the New Zealand
music scene in 2010 with the gold selling hit single Broken Machine.
It resonated around the world, garnering rave reviews from the
prestigious New York
Times, Perez Hilton and MTV Iggy among others.
Since her emergence, ZOWIE
has worked meticulously on her debut album, teaming up with the likes of Lee
Groves (Goldfrapp, No Doubt), Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Pink, Oh Land,), Johnny
Severin Powers (Lady Gaga), Henrik Jonback (Britney Spears, Miike Snow),
Alexander Kronlund (Britney, Robyn, The Knife), Jonas Quant (No Doubt, Hurts,
Kylie Minogue) and Death From Above/1979’s Sebastian Granger.
The result: a musical playground of industrial pop, electronic hip-hop,
and punk, where eclectic beats dance to distorted guitars and slick chants.
Of her debut album Zowie
points to Bowie’s
Ziggy Stardust as one of her inspirations: “I didn’t want it to be a typical
music project…I’m always looking to do something different from my peers”. And
that she does; ZOWIE’s Love
Demolition showcases the future of New Zealand music and is an
irresistible treat for the senses.
