If you haven’t got some Zero 7 in your life, then ‘Distractions’ is the place to start with this hauntingly great track from their album ‘Simple Things’. I have never seen the video before so was happily surprised to stumble across this. I always listen to this and imagine it being played continuously by a bored housewife who realises she hates her life, so it was quite eerie to see that the video echoed the lyrics.
On a brighter note, Zero 7 have a truckload of great albums and the lead singer Sia also has a burgeoning solo career, including a recent guest appearance on Dai Guetts new track ‘Titanium’.
Top 7 Zero 7 tracks:
3. In The Waiting Line (used in a great scene in Garden State)
4. Give It Away
7. Simple Things
