About

Sarah is the gutsy frontwoman of Zara. She writes and records songs that come out of the blue (often in her sleep) and performs them with a posse of talented musicians under the band name of Zara. The fluid line-up currently includes Steve, Stephen, Paul, Simon, Ben and Tiffany. The sound has been likened to The Kills, Savages, Bowie, Bauhaus, The Pixies, The Breeders, Interpol, Tubeway Army. Catchy with a dark side.

” a female David Bowie” – Stardust

[new EP] “sounds like Kate Bush meets Liberteens” – Pomona Sounds

“bringing you the sounds of electro-grunge that could easily be described as elegant punk”  – Sound & Motion Magazine

“the thick relentless bass reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Dead Souls” , and the vocals a stunning amalgamation of Candia Ridley (Inkubus Sukkubus) and Courtney Love (Hole)” – Black Flag Magazine

“a true original who lives, eats, sleeps and breathes rock. No label spin or hype – just old school rock attitude breaking new ground.” – James Tighe, Croydon Radio
