Melbourne "heat beat" icons NO ZU regroup after the passing of vocalist Daphne Camf, to release their first new original music since 2016.
NO ZU have stormed stages from Barcelona's Primavera Festival to Meredith's Golden Plains. Led by the magnetic, tireless Nicolaas Oogjes, NO ZU's multi-limbed, mutant punk-funk has evolved over the last decade to make them one of Australia's most distinctive and debauched groups.
Daphne’s passing in 2021 left a huge hole in Melbourne music, and the band fell into a long silence. Now they return with an EP featuring her final recordings with the group.
Heat Beat, named after the band’s own trademarked genre, is classic NO ZU. Dark and playful, layered with cryptic allusions and implausibly danceable, the EP shows NO ZU at their restless, exploratory best.
