Zuzu – Lie to Myself
If Zuzu wasn’t such a talented artist she’d make an excellent teacher. She certainly knows a thing or two about life lessons.
As a case in point, take a listen to her latest release ‘Lie to Myself’. Here Zuzu explores the trauma of a relationship that’s falling apart. The song addresses issues of mental health, insecurity, and the disappointment when you finally see the flaws in the one you love. It could all sound a bit depressing, but much like The Killers ‘Mr Brightside’ there’s a vitriolic power to it, summed up in a banging chorus.
Zuzu is an interesting character. A savvy, intelligent and bare to the bone songwriter, with a Liverpudlian accent that adds weight to her cause. Her lyrics play victim-chic one minute then triumphant survivor the next, all packed into 3 minutes of magic.
Zuzu’s debut album ‘Queensway Tunnel’ is out soon, so get ahead of the curve and take a listen to ‘Lie to Myself’. “I’m feeling up and down” she sings – well Zuzu’s career is heading all the way up from here.
