Cowtown - "Thru Being Zuul"

Photo by Vincent Lee

Whenever I hear Cowtown, I'm always amazed their not from somewhere in either the Midwest and Southwest United States, and that they don't play some variation of cowpunk. The Leeds based band just released a new single, "Thru Being Zuul." The new single is a hyper and fun burst of dance friendly indie rock and post punk. It kind of crashes DEVO into Le Tigre, and the result is one of the best parties you've ever been to. "Thru Being Zuul" is the kind of song that's going to have you subconsciously bopping in your office chair or on your commute home. Plus, it combines the villain from Ghostbusters with a DEVO song title, and we're all here for that. 

Vocalist and lyricist Hilary Knott says of the new song:

"'Thru Being Zuul' is about monsters that enter the mind wall, and, instead of engaging with how weird that is, you instead choose to have breakfast with them or brush your teeth. Basically the act of normalising something that isn't normal."

You can watch the video for "Thru Being Zuul" below. Fear Of... is due out May 31 on Gringo Records, and is available for pre-order through Bandcamp. For more on Cowtown, check out the band on Instagram and Twitter.
