ARTS Pick: The Zombies

A breathy vocal style, ambiguous lyrics, and sophisticated melodies are hallmarks of The Zombies’ sound. A breathy vocal style, ambiguous lyrics, and sophisticated melodies are hallmarks of The Zombies’ sound.

As part of the first wave British invasion, The Zombies found American pop success in the darkly melodic “She’s Not There,” and disbanded in 1968, moments before “Time of the Season” topped the charts. After pursuing rewarding solo careers, the founding members have recently regrouped and made a new album Breathe Out, Breathe In, which critics have lauded as capturing some of the mystical milieu of the group’s original recordings.

Saturday 4/19. $25-45, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.

    Wow they’ve actually got Rod Argent in this lineup. Definitely worth seeing (not that I’m old enough to know who Rod Argent is).

    of course we’ve all heard “Time of the Season” in a million movies and commercials etc, but it wasn’t until well into adulthood that I actually listened to all of “Odessey [sic] and Oracle” and realized they were amaaaazing.

    ( or, I mean, they *were* amazing in 1968. I dunno about now )
