New Single Alert - Zowie - Smash It


Following the glitter stomp of Bite Back, Zowie returns with her new single, Smash It. The track was produced by Jimmy Harry (Oh Land - Sun Of A Gun) and mixed by Michael Patterson (J.Lo, P.Diddy) is a rallying pop call to arms – part early 90s rave, part Siouxsie Sioux swagger.

Zowie’s bubbling mix of vintage synth-pop and shimmering electro chants have penetrated international borders and have garnered the attention and support of Perez Hilton who last week streamed ‘Smash It’ on his site and had it drum up a staggering 30,000 listens in just under 3 hours.

Hi Perez!

As a beat-obsessed adolescent Zowie matched her encyclopaedic enthusiasm for drumming by mastering everything she needed to fully flesh out her own songs: vocals, guitar and programming.

Zowie’s live show with full band has been called  “a tiny dynamo of electrifying, positive energy” is seen her open for the likes of Mark Ronson & The Business International, Katy Perry, Architecture In Helsinki and Kids Of 88.

She was the New York Times’ Day One pick of CMJ 2010 (and featured in the paper no less than four times across that week) and was personally invited by Perez Hilton to join him for his ‘One Night in Austin’ Party at SXSW earlier this year.

Zowie will be back in Australia in November as a support act on the Strange Talk tour and her yet to be titled debut album will be released early next year.

We can’t wait! Check out the new track Smash It below
