Zenzile continue to blend seemingly contradictory influences (post punk, dub, folk, soft rock, soul jazz) with a savvy sense of their own sound in order to produce a unique album every time. For Pawn Shop, their 8th album, the band has deliberately let their pop spirit open up, Strings and organs are more present than ever to form melodies never dared before. Zenzile dig deeper into influences reminiscent of their teen age years. Shadowy organs, bony guitars, ramping bass,the spirit of Bela Lugosi glides above Pawn Shop. There are also lingering feverish memories of ESG, Pink Floyd, Nick Cave, and PIL- but everything is digested and sublimated only to be more accomplished.
