The new album from Zanias is out now.
The prolific darkwave artist Zanias is getting ready to release her sophomore album, Unearthed. It’s coming on September 6.
This album sounds really promising based on the incredible first single, “Untethered,” and the description posted at Bandcamp:
‘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 is the follow-up to Zanias’ debut full-length, Into the All, which was released in 2018 and included the monumental single “Aletheia.” She’s also released a handful of EPs, including 2020’s Extinction.
