Zotz – “Vacìo” & “Fatal”

Zotz are a tough, intense, spartan postpunk band from Mexico City. They sing in Spanish, and their music is authoritative and urgent while still being gothy and atmospheric. It reminds me of that late-’70s/early-’80s moment when goth was just beginning to emerge from punk but hadn’t quite become its own thing yet. Over the weekend, the band released a new two-song single, and both of the songs, “Vacìo” and “Fatal,” are really great, especially the latter. Listen to both of them below.

You can name your price to buy the single at Bandcamp.
