Mr. Moonlee is proud to present the latest addition to its roster – meet Gazorpazorp, one of the most promising guitar bands from Belgrade if not the Balkans! The band has just released a new video for the track ‘El Matador’ and announced its debut album for the Slovenian indie label Moonlee Records, which arrives in September 2020.
The cinematic music video directed by Ilija Nikitović, which features a fierce fist fight, brings to mind the images of rings, uppercuts and blood encrusted faces from cult boxing classics such as Raging Bulls, Rocky and Million Dollar Baby. A striking, merciless and untamed video full of surprises – just like the music of Gazorpazorp!
Who are Gazorpazorp? One the fresh faces from the mischievou Serbian new wave, which has been gradually taking the baton from the older generation of regional guitar bands! In April 2018, the band released its debut ‘EP #1’, which included some minimalistically arranged but utterly energetic tracks marked by heavy distortion and a hoarse voice. Besides the apparent influences like Repetitor and Metz, its sound represents an amalgam of noise rock forcefulness, post-punk playfulness and psychedelic rock experimentalism both in the Anglo-Saxon and Yugoslav tradition. With its modernized rock aesthetic, Gazorpazorp is a band easily comparable to cutting-edge contemporaries like Squid, Black Midi, Oh Sees, Show Me The Body and Tropical Fuck Storm.
