Ballsy new single from Bull Funk Zoo


Following the release of his fiery and ballsy singles ‘Would You’ and ‘Burnin’, Bull Funk Zoo is on a parade and ready to take the rock industry by storm. Raw and uncompromising, ‘Dangerous Radio’ is BFZ’s blindfolded rollercoaster ride of rock, funk, blues, sex and the news, all the while tipping his hat to masters like Jimi Hendrix, Chilli Peppers, Range Against The Machine, Clutch, Frank Zappa and the Sex Pistols.

While previous collaborations featured Eslam Jawad -M.C (former Gorillaz and Wu Tan Clan) and Hamdan Al-Abri,  ‘Dangerous Radio’ sees Assaad Lakkis a.k.a. Bull Funk Zoo performing and producing the whole album himself. Assaad describes ‘Dangerous Radio’ as a big bad bull rocking out, fornicating & wildly stompin’ the blues to rubble. Hendrix havin’ a drink with Tom Waits & RATM decided to tear it up.

REVIEW: Free From Gravity


The new EP from Free From Gravity heavily features an interesting mix of soft dulcet vocals combined with melodic rock influences. Whilst the band clearly takes inspiration from the rock legends that have come before them they are carving out their own style in today’s music scene.

EP Cover

Their fresh and innovative sound comes hot on the heels of their previous critically acclaimed release “The Long Road” and really continues to set the band apart from others in their genre. The band are well on their way to becoming the spearheads of modern rock and are arguably the perfect introduction into rock.

Unlike many other similar artists, the songs on this new EP can, at times, make you want to sing along to the catchy harmonies or the earworm of a chorus in “Saints and Sinners”. Lead singer Vince’s vocals are well supported by guitars, drums, bass and keyboards giving the whole EP dimension and variety. The pure and soft vocals are beautifully contrasted with the strong guitars and drum beats they are layered over. The musical elements and the lyrics build together and often culminate in strong powerful vibes.

From this new release it is clear to see why the band have already had much success, having played at Bedford Live in London and are set to play many more upcoming gigs in support of their new material.

The infectious excitement of this EP brings causes them to be a band you can’t wait to hear more from. The EP is set for release next month and they are teasing us by releasing singles every three weeks leading up to the release date. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next for Free From Gravity.
