The band was formed in 2005 after a
year of building the concept. In the first EP Kebun Binatang (2007), Zoo was still playing fast, mathematic, and noisy music
as often seen in Boredoms, Ruins, Melt
Banana, or Hella. But in their first full
album, Trilogi Peradaban (2009), elements
of ethnic music was introduced, and then in their latest release, Prasasti (2012),
Zoo’s music has now progressed toward
significant direction; ethnic and tribal elements are no longer elements but has
becoming an integral part of Zoo as a band and therefore creating a new undefined music. All these contrast crossovers of many different influences are
there in order to align the music with
theme that they try to put forward.
The themes behind every lyric are all about modern civilization, human ambition
of immortality, and deterioration of cultural roots.
