Zoot Woman are a electro-dance band with an indie infection. At the core of the act is Stuart Price who will also be known for his time as Jacques Lu Cont and Les Rhythmes Digitales (among several other variables).  Price is a three-time Grammy triumphant musician, songwriter, and record producer and that has also involved collaborations with: Madonna, Brandon Flowers plus The Killers, New Order, Kylie Minogue, Example, Take That, Missy Elliott, Scissor Sisters, Pet Shop BoysGwen Stefani, Seal, Keane, Frankmusik , Hard-Fi, Hurts and Everything Everything. Adam Blake, Johnny Blake and Stuart Price are Zoot Woman and their stunning 2004 Cardiff Big Weekend appearance on the City Hall lawn will be well remembered by Welsh music fans.

After a sold out European tour and festival appearances around the world, Zoot Woman have release the album ‘Absence’ on June 16th – and it has been described by singer Johnny as “our most sincere and personal album so far”. The band’s fifth album features 11 tracks including the infectious single ‘Solid Gold’, followed by the introspective radio friendly follow up ‘Ordinary Face’, the regret-fuelled ‘I Said It Again’ and a 60’s soul inspired ‘Haunt Me’. Adding to the arsenal of synthpop is a contribution from Kylie Minogue on the epic ballad ’Still Feels Like The First Time’.

Adam and Stuart share production duties, melding elements of rock, 80’s and 90’s pop with electronica. The resulting sound contains some of the most uplifting pop melodies they’ve ever delivered. In the final album track ‘You Said The Day Would Come’ Blake sings, “captivated one by one”- and, as if by magic, each track does just that.
