Žen is all-girl band from Croatia, formed in 2009 in Zagreb. Žen combines intricate arrangements and immersive live visuals to create a fully authentic shoegaze post-rock experience.

A new Žen -album is currently planned for autumn through Moonlee Records.

(Zlatko Gall, Slobodna Dalmacija)

“…a trip to the Bandcamp page and listening to ‘I onda je sve počelo’ was inevitable. And once I was
there, there was no going back (…) this album is adorned with relentlessness by which Žen ride
through their vision of post-rock. ”
