Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Andie Zarins from Zenith Moon

Friday, June 29, 2018

Aussie rockers Zenith Moon unleashed their single 'Inhibition' this month, as well as the accompanying music video — which you can watch below! Here's a glimpse into the favourite songs of Andie Zarins, who is on drums in the band.

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Feel Good Inc.' by Gorillaz
For me, it’s gotta be an equal tie between 'Feel Good Inc.' by Gorillaz or any song that charted during the 80’s. The former because listening to that song was my choice, and the latter because Mum and Dad would smash on 80’s pop compilation cd’s every chance they got - thanks Mum and Dad, those tunes really do spin me right round, like a record baby, right round round round.

What song would you love to sample?
The Zorba
I’d love to sample a tune like the ‘Zorba' old Greek classics. I say this because Kahli is Greek and a lot of her family come and see us play. I’d love to see a whole room full of people dancing the Zorba and screaming ‘opa’ while taking shots of ouzo during one of our shows. Plus, I’ve fallen in love with Greek music.

What song did you last listen to?
‘Four Cypresses’ by Grizzly Bear
'Four Cypresses' by Grizzly Bear. I’ve been following these guys for years now and they’re so damn captivating. Can’t wait to see what new stuff they come out with, every new record is simply so fresh and gives me a new perspective on songwriting.

What song do you wish you collaborated on?
Anything by Flume, funnily enough. The beats are so very groovy and the music he creates is invigorating and fresh. Plus, it’s the soundtrack to almost every Aussie summer I’ve had in recent years… (So all of them since he became popular.) I would just add even more layers to the drums.

What song is your ultimate party track?
'Green Light' by Lorde 
It brings me literally zero shame to say… my ultimate party track is 'Green Light' by Lorde. The track’s an absolute banger. Or maybe September by Earth, Wind and Fire. Try to be unhappy and have a bad time to that song, I dare you.

What song has been your favourite track of this year so far?
'This is America' by Childish Gambino
‘This is America’ by Gambino. Hate to sound bang-wagon-y but this song caused me to have a soft spot for trap, how is that even possible? Either way, a banger is a banger, no matter if it’s trap or not.
