Zebra Pulse is made up of Owen Strasky, Parker Thiessen, and Dave Schaefer. Together they touch their machines in weird places and make music that sounds like your record collection falling down the stairs as your life flashes before your eyes. You wont believe your ears, your ears will trick your eyes, you’ll taste your smell, and smell your hearing, it tastes like blood, and you bleed zebra pulse.
