Zero Zero is an electro-fuzz-pop project created by Nicole Laurenne and Michael Johnny Walker (both of The Love Me Nots), and drummer Nick Ramirez (The Dead Eyes of London, Beezlewood, Butcher Jones).
An early demo of the single "Drug" went into regular rotation on Phoenix radio unexpectedly in June 2012 when Laurenne gave the demo to a disc jockey during a live interview. KWSS spun the demo three times in a row, by request. The demo soon began spinning regularly on commercial specialty radio shows out of San Francisco, Boise, Phoenix, and Berlin.
Zero Zero's self-produced debut album, MAYDAY, was released on October 5, 2012, on limited-edition collector's flip drives and digital downloads, by Atomic A Go Go Records. Within one month of the band's first show, Zero Zero shared the stage with Karmin, Magic Wands, A Silent Film, and Roger Clyne, performed headliner slots at music festivals and benefit concerts, was featured in international music blogs, performed live on a tv pilot in Hollywood, and was included in lists of Top 10 Phoenix Albums of 2012 (Phoenix New Times) and Top 20 Songs of 2012 (KWSS 106.7FM – Phoenix).
Zero Zero signed with indie label 80/20 Records in January 2013.
[As the team behind garage rock act The Love Me Nots, Laurenne and Walker have written and released five albums, toured Europe several times, appeared in feature stories in Rolling Stone, Spin, and Village Voice among many others, are currently in regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio, and saw their entire discography re-released by french label Bad Reputation Records. Laurenne was named Best Frontperson of 2010 by The Arizona Republic and Walker was featured in Fender's The Soul of Tone video.]
"Airplay readiness, earthy grittiness...a smart blending of synths and instruments delivers depth and on top of that a delightful vocal. It is of little surprise they have made such fast progress." - Indie Bands Blog (UK) Nov 2012 ("Top 5 Bands of the Week")
"Effortless pop sensibilities. Laurenne's vocals in particular bring a vintage New Wave flavor." – Arizona Republic, Oct 2012
Laurenne commands the stage. She is a breath of fresh air." – Phoenix New Times, Dec 2012
"Incredibly catchy songs. Try to get 'Go' out of your head. It ain't easy." – Incognito Magazine (Orange County CA), Oct 2012
"Brilliantly hook-heavy, catchy-as-hell, sexy, unstoppably infectious electro-pop. Its cross-genre appeal is going to blow minds across the globe." - Java Magazine, Jul 2012
