With an album currently in the works, it’s only a matter of time before Zigtebra’s new music can soundtrack your own drives, haunting the open highways with their imaginative (and vaguely Gothic) spirit.”

Jude Noel, July 4, 2018

Project Name

Zigtebra is the Chicago-based lo-fi indie rock / dreampop duo of Emily Rose and Joe Zeph. The creative partners first met in an LGBTQ dance troupe "Pure Magical Love." After dance practice, the pair wrote musicals and played Chicago's basements, while exploring a uniquely sparkling, spooky pop sound.

Everything changed in 2017 when they went on a 120 day tour and made a pact to make one new song and music video every month of the year. Their live show transformed and they quit their jobs and moved into a van to tour full time. 

For 2018, they have nine months of touring planned, and the release of a new album in July, with big plans on the horizon for 2019...

FFO: Beach House, Youth Lagoon, Sylvan Esso, Phantogram, Bjork, Grimes.

Zigtebra has opened for Oh Wonder, Wild Belle, The Dö, Picture This, EMA, The Blow, Jamilla Woods, and Calvin Johnson
