There has been a rise in alt-pop over the last few years and ZELAH are one of London’s finest emerging bands. Their latest single ‘Save Me’ is an atmospheric track that will instantly pull you in.
The band take influence from the likes of Lorde and London Grammar to create a trademark sound and the result is highly impressive. ‘Save Me’ is a commercial track that has a dark side. The ambient sounds are sublime and the powerful, soulful lead vocals of Zelah Van-Gowler are simply breathtaking.
The instrumentation is just as impressive as the vocals. Warm, empowering synths, distinctive guitars and dramatic drums come together perfectly as the chorus kicks in. With plenty of reverb used across the mix, ‘Save Me’ is well and truly a song to get lost in.
The band express their thoughts on the release below:
“I think we all go through phases of vulnerability and missing what we once had even years after it has ended with someone. As time goes on you mature naturally and see from a clearer perspective, you have a better idea of your own mistakes and insecurities that lead to the breakup, and how silly things become insignificant or how you would do things differently. Basically you realise someone was and could be such a good fit for you but you just happened to meet them at the wrong time. Not always, but sometimes.”
ZELAH are a band with a growing fanbase and it’s easy to see why. Van-Gowler has recently worked with Matrix & Futurebound, singing on their single ‘Got You There’. They have more music planned for release later this year, but in the meantime listen to ‘Save Me’ below. Be sure to keep up to date with ZELAH online here.
