Moulded on Queens of the Stone Age riffs, Smashing Pumpkins’ breadth and My Bloody Valentine’s sonic textures – distortion, fuzz and tinnitus form the backbone to Zeros & Ones’ blend of grunge, hard rock and shoegaze.

Their debut Winese Democracy EP was released in January 2016. Produced by Mono of Galway hard rock legends This Nachez, Winese Democracy features 4 fuzzed out tracks based on classic Irish themes: dickheads, drinking and fighting.

“There’s a sharp focus to their sound, one of unrelenting power and unapologetic decisions. Heavy sounds spiked by softer vocals and subtle melodies puncture the air as ‘Winese Democracy’ begins, and for the most part it never gives up” – Anthem Review

“ ‘Winter Anymore’ is the stand-out track on this EP… A haunting intro is complimented with the perfect tone of gritty bass and drums to form a tattoo that seems more zombie-herd than marching band.” – An Áit Eile

Zeros & Ones released their follow-up Opaline EP in March 2017. Recorded by Hob Junker (Rural Savage, Cranky Face), produced by Will O’Conner (Grounds for Invasion, Willow Sea) and mastered by Carl Saff (Dinosaur Jr., Thurston Moore), Opaline consists of 5 tracks exhibiting a mix of grunge, indie, funk rock and shoegaze. Lyrical themes touch on delusion, Public Enemy and pornstars in L.A.
