Zeep – People & Things (2009)

Zeep - People & Things

You may not know it but you’re probably quite familiar with Zeep’s music – albeit in the form of an earlier incarnation. London-based musicians Chris Franck and Nina Miranda first wafted past your ears as Smoke City, who founded their reputation for inspired Brazilian-influenced pop in the mid-nineties with the contagious Underwater Love. Their more recent guise – Zeep – sees the duo develop their trademark sound to produce 2007’s most summery record. Now they’re back with another beautifully played collection of songs where Miranda’s swooning voice catches the crests of People & Things’ spaced-out pop, chilled rock, and bewitching bossa. It’s an imaginatively cosmopolitan, grown-up and surprising album full of character and ideas. Their Brazilian folk version of the Specials’ ‘Ghost Town’ is the highlight, managing to capture the essence of the song while creating something very different. Another mini triumph for Zeep and bossa-bods everywhere… mrandmrssmith
