Description

Zeep - People & Things

Zeep, aka the London-based duet of Nina Miranda & Chris Franck bring us a fresh, immediate pop album that dips its elegant toes into many musical pools. Catchy escapades, space-age downtempo rock, reflective atmospheres, playful spaghetti western disco and cartoon-like narratives, this album is full of fun and surprises, an excursion into which we're irresistibly drawn by Nina's unique, seductive voice, supported by Chris' immaculate musicianship and production skills.

Also worth mentioning is Zeep's daring Brazilian folk rewiring of the Specials’ classic “Ghost Town”, which has already been given the enthusiastic backing of The Specials’ Jerry Dammers.

Nina and Chris were founding members of Smoke City and Da Lata, and have collaborated with artists such as Tony Allen, Baaba Maal, Ernest Ranglin, Sly and Robbie, Vieux Farka Touré, Nitin Sawhney, Jah Wobble, Femi Kuti, Bebel Gilberto and more.

Reviews

Press quotes on the previous Zeep album:

Delicious album, really fresh and fun
(Gilles Peterson / Radio 1)

Nina Miranda mesmerizes the listeners with her vocal qualities and unique style of singing, a genuinely diverse and fresh album
(Aurgasm)


The ultimate soundtrack to a cosmopolitan Summer… Taking the best of old worlds and melding it with the new, Zeep hold great promise
(Blues & Soul)


This is breezily eclectic, grown-up pop… very well executed… (with) darker and interesting moods that blend spacey samba with a timeless pastoral Englishness
(The Daily Telegraph)


(They) seem to delight in taking songs in surprising directions. A wide-open album, catchy enough to have general appeal
(Songlines)


A proper melting pot of styles. The folk influences (Joni Mitchell, Kristin Hersh) really shine through, but there's a strong pop aesthetic too… The result is a brilliant and playfully honest album. A truly charming LP
(One Week To Live)


Notable for the quality of the musicianship and the impressively infectious songs
(The Guardian)


The pair’s instinct for a lovely melody and Nina’s vocals deliver swooning moments. Beautifully played
(The Observer)
