about

Three years after their first 7-inch release, Melbourne’s most elusive soul project Zillanova step out of the shadows with The Fader, a darkly sensual cut featuring a true revelation – the voice of Joshua Tavares. Bringing to mind both Donny and Marvin, Zillanova’s new frontman is the youngest son of a singing family, his brother Cisco a luminary of soul music in Australia, and his uncles the voices of Tavares, undisputed gods of 70s Disco.

This song is not disco though. The Fader is a dark horse, riding on a dark and funky pocket with a Latin tinge and shades of gospel. It’s a bit 70’s and a bit now – equal parts What’s Going On and Alabama Shakes. Lyrically, The Fader is an ode to departed loved ones and their ongoing presence in our lives. The chorus, ”we all fade away” is a reminder of our own mortality.

The Fader represents the first release in a new phase in the Zillanova project, based around Joshua’s collaboration with HopeStreet founder / producer Bob Knob and an all star band of contributors featuring members of The Bombay Royale, The PutBacks, and Quarter Street.

The Fader will be available on Bandcamp and all good streaming platforms from December 16th. The full EP (and 7-inch vinyl) is also available for pre-orders now! Out through HopeStreet Recordings.
