ZALI has taken the Irish music scene by storm, using her years of training as a vocalist and her passion for the tension of the soul genre to create perfectly balanced music that falls on the delicate side of gentle. Weaving a story of heartbreak and resilience through community, “Girls Like Us” is nothing if not restrained. The power of ZALI’s writing (the artist also spends her time writing fiction and poetry) is made all the more compelling by the way the song withholds extravagance, instead choosing to hold the cards closer to the chest. Listen closely for the weight and significance of repetition; this is a weaver of words at work.
ZALI saw success and radio play over the summer with her track “Can’t Stop”, and has been on the radar ever since. With the release of “Girls Like Us”, we can only wait to see where ZALI goes next.
