Speaking about the release of Ghost, Zoe had to say “This song was written about letting someone get too close, even if you know they can hurt you. It’s about the feeling of being vulnerable to that person in a way that could basically destroy your life. It was also written in one of my first writing sessions so it feels special to release it.” The EP consists of five songs, each delicately penned from a personal, relatable place which will leave listeners with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Speaking about the Golden Wings EP, Zoe said “Each of the songs are autobiographical and very special to me. In a way‚ the EP was written as personal therapy, with each track helping tackle my own mental health. I chose the title “Golden Wings” to symbolize the feeling of ‘security and strength.’ These two things are foundations from where hope can grow. I hope people can relate to my stories in their own way.”
Zoe is currently this month’s Apple Music’s Up Next following on from the likes of Beabadoobee, Holly Humberstone & Tate McRae. Her rise as an artist is nothing short of incredible. A lot of this has come from her ability to create moments with music that is relatable when our hearts are challenged. Looking ahead to unreleased music set to come, fans will want to mark track “Hold Me Like You Used To” as one to not miss when the EP is released next month. It will be a moment where those listening will feel equal parts heart-broken to euphoric, as she sings about how she cherishes & misses the time spent with her great grandmother who has sadly passed away.
