A year on from their explosion onto the scene, this Anglo-Irish crew’s new EP continues to build hype. With former and current members of Rise To Remain and AxeWound on board, there’s no questioning Zoax’s pedigree, and their experience shines in these six genre-spanning songs. They explore styles from all corners of rock, from soaring post-rock guitars on ‘Lonely Souls’ to the swaggering party-riffage of highlight ‘Zero Point Seven’ through to the more contemplative melodies of ‘Right Words’. The whole thing bristles with an energy that’s impossible to ignore.
