Zoo vocalist Rully Shabara.Yogyakarta-based experimental rock band Zoo says it has finally arrived at a musical territory it can call its own and has laid the groundwork for future exploration in its latest album Prasasti (Inscription).
The band toyed with noise, experimental and math rock after its establishment in 2005, an exploration it featured in its mini album and first release Kebun Binatang (Zoo) and it later began infusing traditional and tribal elements in the brew.
A later concoction resulted in an extension of Kebun Binatang, released as a full-album Trilogi Peradaban (Civilization Trilogy) in 2009, which consisted of three parts in three CDs: Neolithikum, Mesolithikum and Paleolithikum.
“Prasasti is the perfected form of our earlier music. We are still going to explore and grow, but we have found the Zoo music,” vocalist Rully Shabara says.
