Zoos of Berlin’s third full-length, “Instant Evening."
Digital Release: November 18, 2016.
Physical Release: December 31, 2016.
Recorded and mixed at The Zoodio, Detroit, by drummer and engineer Collin Dupuis (who recently mixed Angel Olsen’s MY WOMAN, as well as Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence), Instant Evening is, of course, the band’s finest sounding record—but it’s also their finest as songwriters. Trevor Naud and Daniel I. Clark’s writing partnership, started when they were virtually teenagers, has a confidence that previous Zoos records were only hinting at. Everything has a confidence that those previous Zoos records were only hinting at.
From the introspective, lost-on-the-Autobahn yearning of “Ambition Sounds,” to the tape deck nostalgia of “Winter Radio,” to the stripped-down shoegaze of “Glen Riders,” the group’s ability to shift from mechanized pop to dreamier pastures, is seamless.
Lyrically, the boys take to subject matter like alien journalists, disappearing into crowded clubs, smoking weed alone, driving endlessly, trying to break free of life’s big circles. Marriage, breakups, relocations, big losses, big wins, children, the new dawn… it’s all in here through that special, weird lens.
We hope you enjoy Zoos’ Instant Evening as much as we do.

You made my June. I'm not really sure why I love your music so much, but it's just really inspiring that you turned all of these things that happened to you into these jams and ballads. You're brave to process your life and ideas through music and put them out here. I guess many musicians are, but for some reason I didn't really think of it that way until I heard this album. break.light

Weirdly enough this album reminds me of this movie Extreme Days. It was a sports movie that was filled to the bream with 90s music. That movie is a family treasure and this album brings back the memories of that movie.
