With a deep love of found sound, field recordings and a kitchen-sink approach to production, ZvS has been carving out a route through traditional composition to become a leading proponent of what could be succinctly described as Oddtronica.
Following on from the highly sought after debut 12″ EP 'Interviews & Interludes' (2008) on Brighton imprint Cookshop, the debut long player '(Falling from) The Nutty Tree' (2010) was released on legendary LA label Mush Records, spawning the remix album '(Remixes from) The Nutty Tree' (2012), which featured such luminaries as Tunng, Daedelus and Cian Ciaran of Super Furry Animals. After an hour mix for Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Radio, live dates across Europe and North America followed, leading to a live session on Tom Robinson‘s BBC 6 Music show.
2013 saw his breakthrough album on the acclaimed Lo Recordings: 'The Bridge Between Life & Death'. Built from field recordings taken in Iceland in the later part of 2009 and featuring writing collaborations with Icelandic musicians Sin Fang Benni Hemm Hemm and Sigur Rós string section Amiina.
Third LP, Se·pa·ra·ción was released in the spring of 2020. Foregoing his [un]usual experimental electrickery, this album sees snooK strip the songs right back to solo piano tracks while still retaining his celebrated technique of building each song around the melody, rhythm and soundscape of far-flung field recordings – in this case, having been harvested from South and Central America in 2018.
