The Zoltars / Faux Ferocious / Step Sisters says
The Zoltars formed in 2009 in Austin, Texas. Channeling the great rubble garage gods (and goddesses!) of the 1960’s, the past few years have seen the band release a steady stream of moody, nerd-psych infused golden nuggets that have drawn them acclaim far and wide. February 2015 sees the release of the band’s latest LP on Happenin Records, and marks an exciting step forward, conveying a rawer and more light-hearted side of the Zoltars. Dig in!

“This band has a real knack for writing quirky, off-the-cuff garage tunes.” —Drug Punk
“They make aching, clean, uncertain-sounding pop music that’s too strong to be polite, but charmingly unsure of its strength.” —Doug Mosurock / Still Single
“There’s a seemingly endless array of nerd voices out there, from puberty-creaked teenagers to computer-science over-pronunciators, but some nerd voices sound really cool, like the person is so fascinating and peculiar that you’d happily sit down and listen while they read the classifieds out loud. That’s how I feel about the main guy in The Zoltars, a sleepy-eyed, Austin-based rock group who make no bones about the holes in their pockets and tears on their cheeks – this vocalist clearly has been stuffed in more than one locker in his day, but there’s a complexity to his sadness that I want to figure out.” —Yellow Green Red
“The humor will draw you in and then the garage stomp keeps you listening.” —Jason Dean / 7 inches
“In an art class once there was this guy I was so jealous of because he would just come up with this complete bat shit crazy stuff. Scripts that would be impossible to shoot, paintings that you couldn’t paint – I wanted to think like that. To be so completely separated from reality, that only the idea mattered. The Zoltars actually pull this off musically without even breaking a sweat.” —Jason Dean / 7 Inches
