ZibraZibra release new LP ‘Mr. Synthetic’



The Minnesota synth rock crew known as ZibraZibra have officially pre-released their long-awaited LP record, “Mr. Synthetic.” The album is comprised of nine all-new original tracks from ZibraZibra on the Royalty Etc. Records music label, and is the followup album to their two existing LPs, “The End of the Lion” and “777.” ZibraZibra are celebrating this pre-release of “Mr. Synthetic” by offering a very limited edition vinyl LP record in “hott” pink. The following details are faithfully reproduced as they appear on the official ZibraZibra website at zibrazibra.com.


“Mr. Synthetic LP


HOTT PINK 180-gram 12″ Vinyl.
Mastered from 96k/24bit source files.
Limited pressing of 500.

Pre-order includes immediate download of 2 tracks in your choice of high-quality MP3, FLAC, or other formats. A link to the complete album will be emailed to you the moment it’s released.”


Audiophiles unfamiliar with the tone and feel of ZibraZibra have a rare treat in store. ZibraZibra have an upbeat, synth-pop sound that is all their own, but which comes in a seemingly endless array of shades like the varying colors of a chameleon. Their extreme talent and elasticity sometimes recalls the style of Prince and sometimes Queen, sometimes Devo and sometimes DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Their lyrics are ingenious, ridiculous, and hilarious. Their beats are solid and syncopated, their guitars top-notch ’80s fare, their synthesizers every bit as candy-coated good as synth ever was.


ZibraZibra cite as main artistic influences “Miley, Britney, Beyonce, and Paft Punk,” which is almost certainly yet another glimpse of their irrepressible senses of humor. Likewise, upon being asked to describe any theme or message their new LP, “Mr. Synthetic” might communicate, they reply:


“Girrrrrrrl, you ain’t never gonna get whatchu want lookin’ like a troll. Leave your busted-ass pajama pants at home, get your lip gloss poppin’, and dare to be pretty.”


This, however, is not an entirely tongue-in-cheek response, as their closing track on the record is indeed a rocking anthem of vanity titled, “Dare 2 B Pretty.”


“Mr. Synthetic” is available worldwide on limited edition “hott” pink 180-gram vinyl from ZibraZibra.com now. Get in early.
