Melbourne born, Berlin based artist Zanias is a producer, singer, performer, DJ, visual artist & a sole custodian of the Berlin based imprint & music collective Fleisch Records. She has collaborated with Black Rain on their ‘Dark Pool’ LP (Blackest Ever Black), Ancient Methods, Dax J, Sid Lamar among others, while her skills both as a DJ & producer have seen her play at some of the coolest venues such as Berghain, Tresor, Tbilisi’s KHIDI just to name a few.
With her second full-length album, Zanias condenses her post-punk, techno and italo influences into a collection of simultaneously brooding and uplifting pop songs. ‘Unearthed’ explores the multiplicities of human connections, written at a time when connectedness was a resource more scarce than ever before. Field recordings from nature, vocal samples and an array of acoustic instruments are manipulated within a structure of catchy melodic synth maneuvers and driving rhythms, accompanied by her familiar and powerful voice conveying personal musings on hopeless desires and stoic acceptance. ‘Unearthed’ seeks the light and finds it within the exquisite pain of reckoning loneliness.
