The future of Australian roots music is here.
Originating from the tropical rainforest of the Far North, acclaimed Indigenous outfit Zennith have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut EP back in 2007. One thing is consistent though, they’ve always kept true to their style – embracing a solid mix of roots, hip-hop and reggae – melding the three to create a dynamic sound that has seen them grace stages at BluesFest, Woodford Folk Festival and Splendour in the Grass.
The foundation of Zennith is the band’s lifeblood, the Brim family – brothers Astro and Aden, and father Willie – who created the sound back when the brothers were in high school, jamming in the family’s music room in their rainforest home of Kuranda. Willie himself is no stranger to music fame – harking from legendary local Indigenous outfit Mantaka – so it was no surprise he passed the music gene onto his sons. There was something special about Zennith from the very beginning. Not only with the band’s sound, which as expected is tight – an indelible chemistry – but also for their knack in writing catchy songs that appealed for all ages, and fans of all genres. Zennith didn’t just reach hip-hop and reggae fans, they drew acclaim from those on the folk circuit, hard-core rock music lovers and beyond.
