Set for release on September 5, pop artist and producer Zinc joins forces with Meg Caldwell, on his new single, ‘Fallen Star’. The track follows on from his debut release, ‘Thought I Was’, which came out in June.
An electronically enhanced vocal from Meg Caldwell is offset by lush piano melodies, and trap-infused percussion, as well as ethereal backing vocals from Zinc, who also provides a rap verse. The track was written at a time when Zinc was studying for his Bachelor’s degree in Audio Art and Acoustics at Chicago’s Columbia College. The song deals with a time when he was at a hopeless low, and is wonderfully melancholic.
Starting his musical journey at the age of 4, when he began playing piano, Zinc wrote his first song aged 5, and continued expanding on his musical knowledge throughout his childhood and youth, before finally graduating with his degree in Audio Art And Acoustics at Columbia.
Zinc’s relationship with music is just as much about sharing pure emotion, as it is for enjoyment, and his aim is to enable his audience to, “feel exactly what I feel when they listen to my songs”.
Zinc takes his inspiration from artists such as Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Eminem, and channels his suppressed emotions and insecurities into his music, with the resulting productions both sincere and heartfelt.
