Catapulting from the studio to Grammy-nominating status, ZHU has certainly had a white-knuckle ride of an entry into the industry. But that sentiment clearly has not escaped the artist, who explores the speed at which his career and life have exerted over recent years with his sonically soaring new single, “Changes”.
Laid atop a moody visualiser showing a sea of hand-raising fans, “Changes” allows ZHU’s sultry vocals and euphoric beats to blend into a body of work that puts its audience behind the artist’s eyes — at once experiencing the paradox of euphoria and disorientation that comes with being in the spotlight.
Though its message is one of honest recollection, the mind-melting synthesisers maintain the dreamy soundscapes of ZHU’s ever-growing repertoire — one which has already begun to fill halls across the UK and Europe as his headline tour finally gains speed. With a North American headline tour fast approaching alongside sold out shows at Brooklyn Mirage and the Hollywood Palladium, it would appear ZHU is in store for even more changes…providing ample ammunition for the launch of his upcoming album.
