Opening with two pop bangers, Timing and Lie to Myself, Liverpool’s Zuzu sets a real statement of intent on her long-playing debut. Filled with well-produced, guitar-based dance pop tunes, Zuzu’s central strength is her ability to be completely open and brave, not only in her deeply reflective lyrics, but also in her choice to sing in her native Scouse accent; a performance choice that works perfectly to reflect a young artist standing up and saying “this is me, this is who I am”.

Highlights Lie To Myself and Bevy Head showcase an artist who works best inside of upbeat pop compositions supported by Charli XCX style nods to the dancefloor. Punk in the way that it shows an honest profile of the artist, and pop in terms of its sound, this is great.
