Zipper Club is comprised of Mason James of Cerebral Ballzy and Lissy Trullie of Lissy Trullie. “I was never pigeonholed into liking one specific genre,” says Mason, the no-nonsense guitarist and founding member behind the addictive assault of a new-wave inspired band alongside multi-instrumentalist, co-writer, and vocalist Lissy Trullie. “If it sounds good I don’t care if it’s from the 1920s or the 2016s. As a musician, you take little tidbits of cool sounds you hear and combine them into something completely unique. Music needs to reflect on itself.”

“Going The Distance” is in many ways a perfect encapsulation of the no-holds-barred attitude of Zipper Club. “It was very appropriate for me, reflective of a road to nowhere I was on at the time, and I wrote it as a coping mechanism,” he says of a song he describes as “My attitude at the time was ‘I’m going to do whatever I want. I’m going to wake up at 2 and no one can stop me.” He laughs. “It’s actually kind of the most punk song on the album.”
