Zoot Woman

“Can I see the video?”, Johnny asked immediately after he had taken the guitar off his shoulders. Anyone who has seen press photos and artwork of Zoot Woman or attended one of their live shows knows that they belong to the kind of bands who deeply care about sound and self-dramatization. The style argument also counts when it comes to the cover of their critically acclaimed 2001-debut album “Living In A Magazine” with the three eye-catchingly rouged band members wearing white suits in front of a white background and standing behind the characteristic Zoot Woman font. Their well-developed image perfectly accompanies their 80s-influenced electropop music that – despite of the heavy use of synthesizers and electronics – always sounds warm and organic. Johnny Blake’s bright, soulful voice adds catchy and excitatory melodies to the sophisticated arrangements of his brother Adam and Stuart Price, who plays a crucial part in the creative work but regularly fails to join the band on tour. Maybe that’s because he is among the most-wanted producers and remixers in pop business, having worked with Madonna, New Order and The Killers recently. When it comes to Zoot Woman Stuart, Adam and Johnny are united by their perfectionist approach. Fortunately, what he saw on the tiny three-inch-monitor of the camera after the shooting has finally received Johnny’s blessing.
