Zebra Katz is supporting Azealia Banks on her much hyped British tour.
It all begins with an mp3. 'Ima Read' emerged online at the start of the year, with its itchy production matched by Zebra Katz hissing, mocking lyrics. ClashMusic promptly named it Track of the Day, before guest producers began teasing its cross-currents into new shapes via a series of remixes.
Picked up by the fashion world, 'Ima Read' gained viral exposure as part of platform shows. Pushed into the media, Zebra Katz seems - on the surface, at least - to be an immediate star, all flamboyance, glamour and wit. So it's perhaps natural that Zebra Katz is supporting Azealia Banks on her upcoming tour.
Delaying her debut album, the shows are the Brooklyn artist's most sustained assault on Blighty since '212' caused virtually everyone with a pair of ears to go weak at the knees.
Here's 'Ima Read' - find the dates after the jump.
