((Zambri)) Band Profile and Upcoming Los Angeles Concerts - Oh My Rockness

NYC's Zambri is the strangely compelling electro industrial pop project of sisters Cristi Jo and Jessica. I bet you can guess what their last name is. No? Fine, I'll just tell you. It's Zambri.

Zambri's songs are songs that make you "feel" something. And that feeling isn't emo. That feeling is, "This is kind of magical, but I'm also slightly freaked out." Zambri's music makes me feel kind of how that band Austra makes me feel. Maybe it's the twisted distorted noise. Maybe it’s the all those minor keys swooping down like low flying predators to meet the beats. Maybe it's the sisters' haunting harmonies. Hell, maybe it's just the layers. Layers have always frightened me.

I can't really explain Zambri. I can only feel it. And I feel it by feeling the goose-bumps on the back of my neck when I hear these songs. Alright, I just made that up. I don't actually have goose-bumps. I thought it would just be a fun thing to say. But I don't back down from any of the haunting creepy "feelings" this duo gives me.

If you want to see and/or listen to something that's magically creepy in a poppy industrial sort of way, Zambri just might be the band for you. And probably is the only band for you. Who else sounds like this? Well, Kate Bush kinda I guess.
