With South Louisiana serving as a jumping off point, Lafayette's own Zydeco Radio cut, twist, deconstruct and reassemble until they create a fusion of unorthodox sound. They bring an eclectic and relatable message into a music tradition rooted in care-free attitude and good-time vibes. Believing that if a person remembers their troubles it's all the more reason to act to rid them. Dance is the means by which Zydeco Radio delivers. Leveling their influences to create the forthcoming EP, the band's deep cut searches shine through on tracks like "Yea U Rite". Casting a wide net for influence including dancehall, swamp rock, and Zydeco. Its sure to cross any barriers, style or genre, placed in its path. All the boys come from strong music traditions including delta blues, Memphis soul, and all things South Louisiana. Zydeco Radio is music for everyone. Tell your friends and dem!
We are indigenous to South Louisiana. We would like to show the world that we can make progressive music that also embraces this region's French-speaking tradition. We are joining a small but fervent group of young Louisianians engaged in keeping the language relevant via art. Also we would like to drink whiskey and dance all the time.
