Zombie Zombie is a French electro-pop duo formed by Etienne Jaumet (synthesizers, analog modular drum machines, effects, vox) and Cosmic Neman (drums, percussion, vox, rototoms, bongos, maracas, tambourine), plus the French electro-engineer, Joakim, behind the controls. Together they reinterpret the music of John Carpenter. 

Their latest album, Rituels d'un Nouveau Monde, evokes the idea of dialogue between the spiritual language of music and its magic, and shows a strong influence of African and Caribbean rhythms. 

The Cultural Service of the Embassy of France supports their upcoming concert at Comet Ping Pong, a venue for food and music in Washington, D.C. This performance marks the beginning of Zombie Zombie's first U.S. music tour. The opening acts will feature Young Rapids, and Heavy Breathing with DJ Name Names/Ian Svenonius

Read more about how Lady Gaga sampled the band and their cover of Sun-Ra’s “Rocket #9″ in her new song, Venus.

The Independent describes Zombie Zombie as "... a Parisian pairing who impress with their vintage synth-based krautrock rythms and high-energy hommage to the scores of low-budget horror films. John Carpenter-inspired synthesizer soundscapes mix with the no wave electroclash of Suicide."

And according to The Guardian: "Much of its charm is its similarity to 1950s space-age pop, which experimented with cutting-edge editing techniques – the same sense of playful curiosity keeps things fresh here."
