Since their inception in the spring of 2012, Seattle three-piece Zebra Hunt has been delivering decidedly minimal and infectious garage pop with more than a few nods to the 80s Flying Nun catalogue and early Go-Betweens. The band wields propulsive rhythms with a melodic sensibility into something addictive and exciting.
Within the first few months of playing together, drummer Mitch Leffler, bassist Erik Bennett and singer/guitarist Robert Mercer recorded what would become the band's first EP, ‘Beaches’, released in April of this year on the now defunct Manic Pop Records label. Since then it's been a steady stream of shows supporting the likes of Twerps, Bleeding Rainbow, Chris Brokaw (Come, The New Year) and Eternal Summers. This July the band completed their first US West Coast tour in support of their EP, which is now followed by their second 7" single on Tenorio Cotobade.
