It all started when...
Zenizen was created by Opal Hoyt who was born in Alaska and raised between Vermont, Jamaica, Washington DC and Brooklyn. Since heading to Australia for the second time to write/record the band's debut EP, she has been back in New York simultaneously playing shows and working on the band's 'vaguely seasonal' full-length.
Now re-released on vinyl via Don Giovanni Records, the 'Australia' EP has received shouts from Pitchfork, NYLON, Tidal, and others. The band stays busy playing shows and sharing stages with Tiffany Gouche, Anna Wise, Talib Kweli, Teklife, Suzi Analogue, Sammus and more--blurring genre lines and liking it that way but always committed to modern psychedelia, poetry, and groove.
