They’re simultaneously gothic and earthy, lyrically poignant and capable of utterly bewitching everyone in the room ... " - Nightshift, Oxford Music Mag Samuel Zasada was originally David Ashbourne as a solo act. His first Nightshift demo review in March 2009 was less than complimentary but its follow-up earned him a Demo Of The Month award and a review suggesting that at that rate of improvement he would probably have “turned into Leonard Cohen, invented a cure for cancer and scored an Ashes-winning double-century before the summer was out”. After recording and finding more potential with layers of other instruments and vocal harmonies David decided to get a band together.
Samuel Zasada is now Luci, David’s partner, on acoustic guitar and vocals, good friend Tom on bass and vocals and brother Mark on drums. The band release a new EP on 7th August. They played at this year’s Oxford Punt as well as Cowley Road Carnival in July 2010. Read more on Last.fm.
