San Zhi is an abandoned holiday resort in Taiwan. San Zhi are a two piece outfit from London. The two seem disparate. The link between buzz-band and sea-resort tenuous at best. But San Zhi’s faded futurism actually provides the perfect metaphor for the band’s sound. Futuristic, yet dilapidated. Clean cut soundscapes created using drum-machine beats and looping chords, populated by sparse, ethereal vocal lines and cinematic melody. They’re a boy girl duo from opposite poles -Bounemouth and Egypt respectively- that seem to revel in juxtaposition. Catch them live at The Old Blue Last on Wednesday January 23rd.
