What’s the last thing you want to hear at the end of the world? Model Zero’s self-proclaimed “crack psych” feels like the perfect post-apocalyptic party music: primal, punchy, and designed to get those hips on the dancefloor. The band’s style is a mix of garage rock, post-punk, and vintage electronics—basically, weird tunes getting as freaky as possible. Maybe it’s the paranoia and existential angst that build with each passing week, but Model Zero feel like the perfect salve for the lack of sanity. All this is aided by the fact that the songs are more contagious than a viral pandemic and more lyrically savvy than this bonkers experiment has any right to be. Bassist, “Drum Buddy,” and synth player Keith Cooper notes, “The creative process for this group began in the winter of 2016, around the same time as the election of the 45th President of the United States. It’s no coincidence that the cold winds of change on the world stage could be felt blowing on the streets of Memphis and inside our bewitched, booze-addled brains. Additionally, there was just a lot of creative buildup with no output that came spewing forth. All of that combined is really what’s responsible for the frenetic energy and madness in the songs.” Long live this creative and delightful insanity!
