Event description
Mark Zubia release show for his brand new EP entitled ZUBIA. w/ special guests The Black Moods & Rock Bottom Bros (Doors 8pm / Show 9pm)

About this event

The EP opens with a haunting, wind-swept ballad called "Carry You Home" about what Zubia refers to as "the conflict between loving somebody but also being very hurt by them."

The songs bring up raw emotions...especially in moments as poignant as "Once more, words spill out on the kitchen floor/ Like a thousand and one times before/ I could almost drown."

Those feelings are even more raw on the second song, "Bleed," with its withering chorus of "You take what you want anytime you need/ And leave behind the rest of us to bleed."

"It was written in, like, 10 minutes, one of those things where there was enough emotion there that it just came pouring out," he says.

Writing and singing those songs, which were recorded and mixed before his brother died, was cathartic.

"It's just a good way to move forward with the past," he says. "Still holding on to the past, but moving forward in a healthy way. Not out of anger or resentment."

Going back and listening to a song as raw as "Bleed" or as poignant as "Carry You Home" after losing his brother wasn't easy.

"But I've done this long enough to know you're writing songs about what's going on in your life at the time," he says.

"And if something happens in the future that happens to reflect on those songs in some way, you don't regret it. That was just the moment and you're doing what you do."

The key is sharing those emotions in a way that resonates outside the context of the inspiration for those songs, which Zubia has definitely done here.

"Those situations are not unique to me," he says. "Hopefully, people relate to those songs because they have had similar experiences, emotions and challenges."
