Zoo Kid.

Zoo Kid is the alias of Archy Marshall, a young guy from London who’s creating music way beyond his years.

With a deep, rough voice that sounds a bit like Jamie T he couples his dark lyricism with basic guitar instrumentals to create a quite interesting soundscape. Add to that the clever usage of vocal sound bites – “I’m sorry”, his first single ‘Out Getting Ribs’ is one of emotional strength and depth. An echo in the production gives the track a sparse feel and its minimal complexion couples with a minimal video that shows off his fantastic haircut (think La Roux). For a guy of 16, this song shows incredible songwriting and style. His track ‘Ocean Bed’ features a catchier riff, but the production style is the same, with the addition of a bass drum as the song builds. This is an artist I’d strongly recommend keeping an eye on this year.
