ZIA NAMED BEST BAND TO BELONG ON MARS
by Lalena Fisher,
Village Voice, Best of NYC
"Just the stage setup of the electronic pop trio ZIA makes
it clear these brainy earth babes are coming from a galaxy
far, far away. And now they've got a boy, too: Geeky goth
kid Matt Dallow recently joined "Blue Liz" Lysinger and
founder Elaine Walker, who serves as president of the New
York City Chapter of the National Space Society. Zia craft
Hefty bags and duct tape into sexy stage wear, and use
keyboards, pre-programmed drums, and various synthesized
noises to jet-propel their songs about the big bang theory,
supernovas, and being misunderstood for reading space
zines. To trigger sounds, they hit rigged-up circuit boards
or the buttons on some kind of homemade guitar . . . thing.
When not appearing at an NYC nightclub, they wow crowds at
science-fiction and space conventions around the country.
