Get to know New York-based singer Lolo Zouaï...
KEY TRACK: High Highs To Low Lows
WHO: Lolo Zouaï is a 23-year-old singer gearing up for a UK break in 2019.
WHAT: Released in 2017, High Highs To Low Lows mapped out the blueprint for Zouaï’s bleary blend of R&B and pop. Watery melodies, distant bass and vocals that land in a sweet spot between misery and euphoria.
WHERE: Zouaï was born in Paris to French and Algerian parents, and moved to San Francisco aged three. She now makes music in New York’s Lower East Side with producer Stelios Phili.
WHAT ELSE CAN I HEAR?
Ocean Beach dropped last month and features the sublime Lose Myself and Jade, with Blood Orange.
AND WHAT’S COMING UP?
Following a packed London date late last year, Zouaï is due back in the UK soon. “I want to have a long career,” she told Wonderland recently. “Connecting with people is the biggest thing. The biggest goal is to get rich, and then give away all your money!”
One of the best we’ve heard in a while.
