MOKB brought to your attention Berlin’s Zulu Pearls and their DIY, 70s era rock sound back in June. After a long-wait, the band is ready to release their album, No Heroes No Honeymoons, on September 18th through the Big Apple’s Cantora Records. Luckily, you don’t have to wait that long because we got our grubby little hands on a full stream that we are sharing with you today.
Most of the recording for the LP took place in the back hallway of D.C.’s Inner Ear Studios between primary songwriter Zach Van Hoozer and producer Nick Anderson. According to their bio, the two connected on their mutual appreciation for seventies music and a disliking for modern guitar rock and two pieced the record together in their spare time outside of bar shifts and day jobs to keep some money in their pocket. The result is an album that has been garnering a slow-building buzz throughout the last few months. Find it below along with some upcoming tour dates.
