Our girlÂ Esther ZynnÂ has been hard at work in the studio making her original music and hearing some upcoming tracks off her EP, we can say that it’s definitely paying off.
Zynn, who goes byÂ EZI,Â just released “Afraid of the Dark” and we’re absolutely loving it. The pop tune also has a very special meaning to the 21-year-old, as it represents her coming out of a dark time in her life.
“I wrote my EP after having fallen into a period of depression so all of the songs on it are sort of about me navigating that experience,” EZI explains. “Afraid of the Dark was the last song I wrote for my EP (it’s also the title of my EP) and I wrote it when I was coming out of that particular period in my life.”
“Although I was relieved to feel more like myself, I was paranoid of falling back into that state of mind again. By the same token it’s also about how I weirdly missed the highs that came with being sad and self-destructive. I was also really inspired by Alice in Wonderland while writing the EP, as I related to a lot of the themes. There are some references to that in the song and in my visuals, as well.”
