ALL PROFITS TO ARTISTS
Despicable Zee, aka Zahra Haji Fath Ali Tehrani, is an Oxford-based producer & drummer who specialises in leftfield, electronic lo-fi-pop – wonky yet meditative tunes, punctuated by biting rhythms and echoes of The Knife, Tirzah, CocoRosie and Madame Gandhi. Her music includes has samples of her newborn, lullabies from her Irish mother and her grandmother in Iran, in an attempt to reconcile different cultures, generations and memories that may be separated by thousands of miles, or thousands of years. In this she explores what motherhood means to her and tries to finds her own place in a lineage, where the past and the future intersect.
Leicester's slow-pop pioneers return after performing for AmPop with Cultdreams back in September. SBEB self-describe as "expansive pop for austere times", threading influences from Low to Fleetwood Mac to Cocteau Twins whilst never losing sight of the political power of pop music.
Warped, broken, polyrhythmic techno, doomy drone-squall, music concrete textures wrenched from drum machines and FX pedals.
