The Zangwills

Jake Vickers, Ed Dowling and Sam Davies met at sixth form college in Northwich, Cheshire and The Zangwills line-up was completed by drummer Adam Spence from Chester in May 2017. They released their debut single New Heights in December 2017 and have released music steadily since including 2 EP’s It’s Really Up to You and In Amongst the Glitter. Each of them bring very different influences to the band and this, along with Jake’s unique voice, is reflected in their distinctive sound which is instantly recognisable. Tricky to pin down for comparison, the band cite David Bowie, Arctic Monkeys, The Cure & The Strokes among their influences.
