Zowie burst into the New Zealand music scene in 2010 with the gold selling hit single Broken Machine. It resonated around the world, garnering rave reviews from the prestigious New York Times, Perez Hilton and MTV Iggy among others. Since her emergence, ZOWIE has worked meticulously on her debut album, teaming up with the likes of Lee Groves (Goldfrapp, No Doubt), Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Pink, Oh Land,), Johnny Severin Powers (Lady Gaga), Henrik Jonback (Britney Spears, Miike Snow), Alexander Kronlund (Britney, Robyn, The Knife), Jonas Quant (No Doubt, Hurts, Kylie Minogue) and Death From Above/1979’s Sebastian Granger. The result: a musical playground of industrial pop, electronic hip-hop, and punk, where eclectic beats dance to distorted guitars and slick chants.
Of her debut album Zowie points to Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust as one of her inspirations: “I didn’t want it to be a typical music project…I’m always looking to do something different from my peers”.
