Zimbru can be described as a wild mix of raspy synthesizers, angular guitar riffs and lively percussion all topped off by stories of dancing, lost pets, queer love and nostalgia for never experienced past decades.
The band made its debut in early 2019 with a string of shows and a live recording of Dog Heaven (Live). This release was closely followed by the band’s first ever single - Divination. The song has enjoyed remarkable success – it entered heavy rotation on national radio and received great critical reception. Mystic Sons wrote: “Romanian outfit bring the same otherworldly sound as Anna Calvi to their newest electro-pop swoon.”. The summer months following the release of Divination saw the band play all of Romania’s major music festivals, to great acclaim. British magazine NME wrote: “Mixing skittering electronic beats with powerful vocals and glittering production, this lot’s show is well worth catching.”. The fall of 2019 marked the release of their second single and debut EP, both entitled Little Creatures. The EP consists of four tracks - Divination, Little Creatures, Terejo and Dyo. The band started to get more international attention following this release. In a feature article, Europavox praised the band's charming debut: "Labeled as a breath of fresh air in the Eastern-European space, one cannot help but fall in love with Zimbru again and again.".
