Bio

Zig Zag are half garage rock extremists, half disco junkie night cats,
swinging these contradictions in the air, careless and free and flaming
with pride. As a collective of queers, Zig Zag embraces experiences of
pain and trauma with camaraderie and optimism. Zig Zag build catchy riffs around expressive lyrics, burning up the dance floor with anthemic angst. It’s punk, it’s celebratory, it’s cathartic, it’s yours. The only thing it’s not is straight.

Zig Zag features members of Loobs, Laura Imbruglia’s Bin Chickens, Scratch Match and more

Zig Zag will be supporting the Cable Ties for their Far Enough album launch at the Corner Hotel 9 & 10 October 2021

I Care About You is an anthem of love and support born in a group hug on the middle of the dance floor. It’s a cathartic follow up to their fiery single ‘Do Better’ released in October 2020 via Psychic Hysteria.
Engineered, mixed and mastered with humour and skill by Andrew Huhtanen McEwan
Produced by Andrew Huhtanen McEwan and Kelly Dingeldei
Lovingly released by Kurt Eckardt and Kalindy Williams via Psychic Hysteria

I Care About You single launch - John Curtin Hotel 28th August 2021 with Porpoise Spit and Biliam

Zig Zag work and play on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and a treaty was never signed. This always was and always will be aboriginal land.

gruff and heartwarming aren't usually two adjectives that go hand in hand but they're squeeze tight over in these parts. Pleased to meet you Zig Zag.

Charismatic word play and the snappy energy in those guitars are good fun. What a song!
