Single Review By Mike Richardson


Zed Motel - Tie Dye - cover

Zed Motel are a Two-piece from Swansea who wear their influences on their sleeves at all times.  This is 70’s style, bluesy, heavy rock.  It sounds somewhere in between Black Sabbath’s earliest work, and Monster Magnet at their best.  The single, Tie Dye is a slab of unapologetic retro rock, and any fans on that classic sound will eat this up.

B-side, ‘New Pony’ is again very Sabbathy, down and dirty with a Sweetleaf/War-Pigs vibe.  All along though, it’s homage and inspiration rather than derivation.

If you like classic heavy rock, listen to this!

Check ’em out if you like: Black Sabbath, Monster Magnet
