“Sidney, named after Sidney IL, was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered independently by ZORILA. Tracked adjacent to a busy train station, “Sidney” is a 40-minute glimpse into the lives of four starving artists from small-town America. Countless late nights and cases of beer were spent on the creation of this record. With this album, ZORILA intends to provide the world with not only a diverse listen but music that it doesn’t know it needs. What is a “zorila” again?”

Kings of Leon

Initially embraced as “the Southern Strokes” for their resurrection and reinvention of Dixie-styled rock & roll, Kings of Leon steadily morphed into an experimental rock outfit during the 2000s. The Tennessee-bred quartet debuted in 2003 with the Holy Roller Novocaine EP, whose blend of raw, unpolished boogie rock was further explored on their debut full-length, Youth & Young Manhood.

The Killers

As they matured from their indie dance-rock roots into torchbearers of new wave and Americana-inspired anthems, Las Vegas rock quartet the Killers earned global success. With a mix of ’80s-styled synth pop and fashionista charm, the band’s multi-platinum 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, became one of the decade’s biggest releases, spawning four hit singles — including their most enduring hit, “Mr. Brightside” — and catapulting the group into the international spotlight.

Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys arrived in 2005 with a blast. Assisted by rave reviews and online word of mouth (they were one of the first bands to benefit from the tangled web of social media), the band quickly became a sensation in the United Kingdom, where they were seen as the heir apparent to the throne left vacant by Oasis, or perhaps the Libertines.
