Live Concert Photography: Zig Mentality at Mercury Lounge 1/14/20
Initially forming under the name dube, the Ottawa-based indie rock trio Zig Mentality self-released two singles — “Pretty Girls on Bikes” and “Stoned Love” — that quickly received praise across the blogosphere from outlets like BrooklynVegan and others for a sound that draws heavily from 90s grunge. Building upon a rapidly growing profile, the young trio wound up playing sets at Osheaga Festival, Ottawa Blues Festival, Bonnaroo, Northern Invasion and several others.
The young and rising Canadian band recently signed to Lava Records (the label home of Jessie J., Greta Van Fleet, Lorde and others), who will release their major label debut later this year. In the meantime, the members of Zig Mentality opened for fellow Canadians cleopatrick at a sold out Mercury Lounge the other day. Check out photos from Zig Mentality’s opening set below.
