Zweng brings out the best in soulful alt/pop. The band seamlessly blends morose visions as delicate as Elliot Smith with raw soul pounding and urban alternative jams.
Music Connection compared them to the New York Dolls and Prince in a recent review. The masterful production of member Jonathan Hakakian adds subtle layers of dimension to the band’s ambitious songs; while Steve Riley’s drumming syncopates and highlights the styles effortlessly.
The band’s newest material represents a shift to a more rural approach to songcraft, evoking Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, contrasting a deceptively hi-fi sound. Live shows are ripe for experimentation, guest musicians, and impromptu extensions.
