The release of Ziko's debut album 'Ghosthips' (featuring the singles 'Needle In A Haystack' and 'Gwee Gwaa') is celebrated with a national tour . . .

ZIKO are an Auckland quartet with musical backgrounds in funk, soul, downbeat electronica and alt-rock. Featuring the rhythmic groove of bassist Richie “Mr President” Setford (One Million Dollars)and drummer Kris Baudry are the modern funk’n’soul bedrock underpinning the dual (and duelling) melodic directions of “Dr.” Nick Boyle’s keyboard swirls and the textured guitar work and artfully-charged vocals of Simon Turner.

Their debut album Ghostships is the sound of a convergence resulting in something new and unfamiliar.

Avoiding indulgent jamming and repetitive motifs, Ziko produce music which is neither over-familiar nor overly-arty: accessible and rather thrilling. While Ziko is a band who undertake the same stuff as many others – that is, write, record, and play live – it is a rare group indeed who arrive with an album that feels simultaneously like both a starting point and a destination. Ghostships manages to demonstrate that wherever you might have come from, fresh ideas and approaches can take you somewhere unexpected.
