Zazie Essentials

Zazie Essentials

A brilliant violin prodigy turned psychotherapy student turned model turned singer/songwriter, Zazie has enthralled her native France since the '90s. Her eccentricity, inspired by artists like Jacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg, has been delectable from the start. Breathy and delicate but saber-sharp, and open to global rhythms and goth embellishments, Zazie's sound suggests Kate Bush given over to ornate Pet Shop Boys production. Meanwhile, her lyrics often hinge on gender preference, race issues, feminism, changing technology, and spirituality—all spiked with slyly punning wordplay.
