Content warning: discussion of sexual assault in the text and music’s lyrics.
Zosia has just released ‘Overthrown’, an emotionally-charged but easy-on-the-ear pop single on a hard-to-hear subject, society’s treatment of sexual assault victims. Zosia details her own struggle of battling shame and issues of self worth after being a victim of sexual assault, and hopes to help others heal. She says:
“As a victim myself, I have spent my life battling shame and issues of self worth. I was depressed and angry for ever other victim who has faced and will face this sort of dismissal of their pain.”
Zosia has succeeded in composing a beautifully raw anthem that embodies the range of emotions that so many women deal with on a daily basis. “We don’t have to be either vulnerable or strong; vulnerability is just another form of strength” explains Zosia.
LA-based singer, producer and songwriter Zosia (born Anneke Lada) began writing songs at the age of nine. With a diverse set of influences, Zosia describes her musical style as alternative electro-pop with elements of trip hop, rock and alternative R&B. With strong vocals and cinematic synths, Zosia’s lyrics touch on overcoming depression, anxiety and finding fulfilment.
