Discussing the new single, Zen/it explains: ‘Ocean is a very special record to me. I wanted to make something different from what I used to come up. It’s a mixture between a nostalgic feeling and a positive vibe that make it particular to me.’
This time, Zen/it teams up with VHS Collection’s James Bohannon on vocal duties. Famous for their high energy live performances, and distinct alt/synth rock, electronic and disco influenced retro sound, James makes the perfect pairing for Zen/it’s musical stylings. With smash hits such as ‘Fire’, ‘Animal’ and ‘Dreaming’, he is successful in bringing his 80s influences on the track in question.
Formerly Lush of Electronic duo Lush & Simon, Zen/it explains of his new incarnation: ‘It’s about the mood I’m creating, something trippy/dark/introspective which I feel fits nicely with the zen philosophy (even if in a dark way). Zen/it: I see it as a verb, for example, anyone can create a song, but not everyone tries to express themselves through it. They have to zen it a little more…’
