Upstart rockers Z may not be on your radar yet, but they’re aiming to change that. The project started last November as a performance art vehicle by Nashville based producer and audio/visual artist Zach Prosser, but has since grown into a foursome, rounded out by percussionist Julian Ciany, bass player Annalyse Clark, and guitarist Steven Bauer. While the band have an obvious melodic punk nucleus, digging in deeper you can also hear them dabbling in elements of kraut, funk, hardcore, industrial, and more. The band is gearing up to release their third record within the span of their 1 1/2 years on local Nashville label Cold Lunch Recordings.
