Approaching electronic pop with a soulful lyricism which is driven by a moody bass-line and warped synths, London-based artist, ZAE, has just released her new single ‘Faking Love’.
Following the release of her latest single, ‘Letting Go,’ which ZAE reveals to be inspired by Banks, she explains that ‘Faking Love’ provides a more optimistic ode to the self, a track focussed on the idea of becoming comfortable in your own skin. Accompanied by a production-style akin to that of SG-Lewis, ZAE’s lyrics and vocals complement each other to reflect an impassioned nonchalance which resonates throughout the track.
If this latest instalment is a sign of things to come, be sure to keep an eye out for more in the future. Visit ZAE’s Spotify and Soundcloud or listen to ‘Faking Love’ and check out the visuals for ‘Letting Go’ below.
“I wanted the song to highlight the importance of breaking through traditional, right wing ‘society norms’ in order to get to a place where you feel comfortable in your own skin. To be able to love fully and openly without fear.”
