Zerostar actually take on board ingredients from Jane’s Addiction, Britpop and even the questionable catchiness of Kaiser Chiefs.
The quintet are fronted by the excellently named Bentley Browning and also benefit from the charisma of Zoe the keyboardist. XFM and BBC 6 Music are fans, as is Grant Nicholas from Feeder, who saw the band at the Dublin Castle in Camden and waxed lyrical about their ‘damn catchy songs’.
Their first single, ‘A Rock Star Saved My Life’, received radio airplay here and there, and their second ‘Hallelujah Baby’ managed to get MTV involved…
