ZAZA is the musical union of Jennifer Fraser and Danny Taylor, who are both west coast transplants that connected by fate in New York. This duo has had separate success with other projects, Jennifer is a multi-instrumentalist who previously played in The Warlocks, while Danny is known for his close associations with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart while also manning sound for various bands and venues throughout NYC. The NY press has compared them to the likes of Slowdive and Cocteau Twins, which I can totally hear the similarities of a Slowdive comparison. The Cocteau Twins comparison is a bit harder for me to hear the similarities unless you really focus on the guitar, then yes maybe a smidge. I think ZAZA stand alone as their own unique sound. Making them, according to Dazed and Confused as “one of New York’s best kept secrets.”
