Ontario-based singer-songwriter/producer Zanski has been turning heads over the last couple of years with his infectious blend of electronic and pop that calls to mind the work of Ben Khan, Jai Paul and, more recently, Demo Taped. Listening to his electrifying new EP, Collapse, it’s easy to hear their influence in his music. But where his contemporaries shy away from the mic, Zanski lets his vocals shine through.
Collapse, in all of its sonic glory, is as much a testament to Zanski’s production chops as it is his vocal prowess. The lyrical content is dark, yes, but where it’s smoky in its delivery it’s bright in energy. Full of colourful synths, explosive hooks and razor-sharp guitar riffs, it’s a positively intoxicating offering from one of the year’s most promising young artists.
