Many music critics and fans consider the 1960s a musical highwater mark. After success in their home country, many British bands invaded the U.S. in search of new fans, which they found in abundance. The Zombies were among the more successful of the “British Invasion” bands, with not one but two American hits in 1965, “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No.”
Toward the end of the decade, as Flower Power overtook the mainstream, The Zombies’ “Time of the Season” from the classic album “Odessey and Oracle” proved a veritable anthem: “It’s the time of the season for loving.”
Even though many decades have passed, The Zombies are still together and making new music. Their latest effort is 2015’s “Still Got That Hunger,” a throwback to ‘60s rock sounds with a contemporary edge. This collection of newer tracks from the legendary band should please dedicated fans as well as attract new listeners.
