London-based alt-pop duo ZELAH release new single “Let Go”, taken from their debut EP I.
Hailing from Bristol and Cambridge, ZELAH are two friends who met whilst studying and instantly formed a connection over a shared love of dark sounds and somber lyrics. Their latest single “Let Go”, taken from their debut EP I, is a dark pop track with electronic soundscapes that takes influences from artists such as BANKS, London Grammar and Lorde. It’s an enjoyable listen from start to finish, the duo most definitely showcase their immense potential. Press play.
“‘Let Go’ is much newer than the others, written in the autumn of 2019 when we had this yearning for a more alternative sound and approach. You can hear this on a previous single of ours ‘Adrenaline’. I’ve always been massively into bands such as Yonaka, Peace, Glass Animals and Arctic Monkeys. This combined with a love of Banks, London Grammar, Alt-J and Lorde has guided us into this darker pop sound world which sometimes tends to lead us in a heavier direction with writing. Let Go is definitely the darkest track on the EP and is mostly an expression of needing to feel something genuine in amongst a lot of other shallow and unfulfilling things” — ZELAH.
