Rafe, Tyler, Matt, and TJ from Zero Circle joined Jess in the Radiator Studio for Big Heavy World’s ‘Rocket Shop’ local music radio hour this Wednesday night! They came bearing their yet-to-be-released self-titled EP, complete with five awesome songs. We were even lucky enough to get to hear a brand new song from them, live in the studio! I would never have guessed that it was a new song, either—the way that Tyler and Matt played together while Rafe and TJ were so clearly tuned in really demonstrated just how close these guys are. All four members of Zero Circle have lived in the area and known each other for their entire lives. They’ve all played music forever, but didn’t start this current project until just a year ago. Upon learning this, my first question was WHY? How did it take so long for four friends, all talented musicians, to get together to form Zero Circle? Lucky for us, they explained—they all had individual projects, but found these projects dying down all at the same time… and thus, Zero Circle was born! From the looks of it, it’s about time too. The energy between the four as they joked around and played off one another was infectious. Check them out live this Thursday at the Monkey House or this Saturday in Rutland, or online at [powerpress]
