Zhou Kroix

How does one succinctly put Zhou Kroix into words?  This super-collaborative, mystical offering from New York City‘s finest takes an experimental-reggae basis and mixes it beyond recognition via Middle Eastern scales, traditional Irish hymns, Bowie-Zappa-Rundgren love-children, and ASMR-style R&B vocals.  Underneath the music itself lies a mysterious narrative concerning a wandering girl, seeking her ghostly lover-of-past. Produced by Adam Ahuja (Infinity Gritty label founder and artist) and E Scott Lindner (NYC’s Pinch Recording owner and head engineer), and featuring an extensive all-star cast including Brad Walker (Sturgill Simpson, George Porter Jr.), Yula Beeri (Seasonal Beast, Brooklyn’s “The Hive”), and Ry Pilla (project founder and drummer),  Zhou Kroix will take you on an enigmatic, magical cart-ride through a dimming forest, decorated with sometimes sensitive, sometimes weird-fresh hooks hinting at the outskirts of New York, London, Teheran, Tel Aviv, Dublin and Kingston. Zhou Kroix presents: “Count the Clocks.”
