Z-Star Delta

What brought you two together? Mathieu Chedid, a French rock star invited us both to a basement jam in London.
Who are your greatest inspirations as musicians? Zee: The Doors, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Led Zep, Nina Simone, The Black Keys. Seb: Jack White, Ben Howard, Ben Harper.
What is the best and worst part about being a duo? We love jamming and writing new tunes especially on the road. There’s so much space for improvisation and exploration of new ideas we just keep expanding our sound. The only downside is that we have a full band backline to carry around.
What can somebody expect from a Z-Star Delta gig? An ultra live cosmic experience. Unpredictable, raw, thunderous, seductive, velvety desert blues rock.
You're buried with one all-time favourite album, what is it and why? Z: The Doors Live at Hollywood Bowl. So I can take that Brave New World shamanic energy with me into the next life.S: Bon Iver, Bon Iver. It’s so inspiring and lush. Every time I listen to it I hear sounds that I haven’t heard before.
What do you want listeners to feel when they listen to Face the Iron Ram? Like they’ve just discovered the next favourite soundtrack to their lives. Ready to enlist for all future voyages into the Delta universe – brave, bold, boundless and beautiful.

Z-Star Delta will launch ‘I Put a Spell on You’ at the Grace Darling on Saturday October 14.
