The band was formed through a combination of happy circumstance and professional connections and has been slowly building a repertoire of original songs while rehearsing over the last 18 months. East of Zurich seeks to reimagine the guitar-driven Indie rock/pop of the 90’s by adding a more melodic flavour through the use of a variety of keyboard overlays and subtle backing vocals.
Come and Find Me Now is the first single from a self-titled debut EP recorded at Airlock studios (owned by Ian Haug – Powderfinger) in the beautiful Samford Valley west of Brisbane. The EP, to be released in the coming months, is a reflection on the unpredictable nature of life and the personal relationships that guide our collective experience. With undertones of the angst-ridden Indie rock reminiscent of the early 90’s it is ultimately an uplifting collection of songs, as self-doubt and awkwardness give way to maturity and responsibility….and kids.
Martin Brabec, chief-songwriter, grew up in Switzerland and had considerable success as the frontman for local Indie band Flink, before uprooting and moving to Australia.
East of Zurich is 4 professionals with a love of music, craft beer and a desire to combine the two on a regular basis.
