ZOË - Death Wish

Following up last months single, Mirage, ZOË returns with her exceptionally resounding new effort Death Wish. Built around its chest-thumping bassline, the track ducks and weaves its way through a series of changes, all accompanied by her confident vocals, infectious melodies and welcoming minimalism. "On many occasions I have offended people by speaking openly about how damaging white male privilege is and how we need more men to stop being ignorant and entitled and start to speak up for us as allies" ZOË explains. "Recently, I got to a boiling point where I realized I have seen and heard too many ignorant actions for me not to write an entire song about it. What a lot of men lack is empathy—the willingness to put themselves in another person’s shoes and see the world from a marginalized person’s point of view—because, growing up in their privilege, it wasn’t something they were taught was important. If a man put himself in my life for one day, he would feel so much fear, shame, and a lack of respect from others just for being a woman. If he knew what it was like to have to walk around in public in broad daylight, clutching onto his pepper spray, praying no one harasses him just for existing, there’s no doubt in my mind he wouldn’t feel my pain and start to be a vocal ally for women. Take a listen for yourselves below.
