Soraia is a band I found out about via YouTube. I have been blown away ever since! All I can say is that you need to check them out, both on YouTube, and on their official website www.soraia.com . Read ZouZou’s bio, read everything, listen to what’s there, and get the CD “In The Valley Of Love And Guns”, because it’s awesome. After listening to it once, I felt I’d shared her soul. And unwittingly shared mine with her.
My CD and stuff, addressed by ZouZou herself (were I the type to ‘squeee’, I would!)
Her lyrics have a wonderfully confessional honesty within them, and at the same time, a great sense of dare and challenge. The band is as proficient musically as she is at the microphone, weaving a sound that reminds me of the 60’s. Those would be, of course, the 60’s of Russ Meyer and James Coburn’s Derek Flint!
Here’s a suggested video sampling:
