The last few months of 2011 were so hectic that keeping a finger on the pulse on what’s going on in the NZ scene really had to be put on the back burner. However, a new year is upon us, workload has halved, so it’s back to the music.
Zowie (Zoe Fleury) at only 23 years old, has already been on the NZ scene quite a while. She is formally known as Bionic Pixie, and was quite a hit with the fashionista crowd with her electro-punk beat-driven tracks. She has now transformed herself into Zowie and has taken over the NZ airwaves with this catchy tune Broken Machine. Receiving a very positive write-up in The New York Times for her performance at the New Zealand showcase at CMJ 2010, I have a feeling she is going to make her mark internationally very soon. Signed to Sony Music, her album is due for an early-mid year release. Big things ahead for Zowie in 2011.
