In the deep dark depths of a dreary January, when it can’t even snow properly, here comes an indie-pop instant classic from Merseyside’s latest, greatest export Zuzu to lift your spirits.
“This is what we’re supposed to be, loveless and carefree, c’mon and tell me want you want me to be, ‘cos I love you carelessly” goes the hook – a juxtaposition of unburdened joie de vivre and doubtful self-introspection, framed by infectious ‘ooohs’.
Succeeding in creating that dream combo of being both feet-twitching and sing-along-inducing ‘What You Want’ is a perfectly concise self-contained pop-with-a-little-p gem. It’s unsurprising that she’s been catching the attention of the UK’s foremost tastemakers, the likes of Huw Stephens and Annie Mac leaping on board to bang the Zuzu drum zealously.
‘What You Want’ is out now on Hand in Hive. Purchase on iTunes here.
