Zaryah – Headhunter [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

I would describe my sound as sensual, empowering and fierce.

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the story behind it?

To me headhunter is the ultimate ‘what goes around comes around’ song. I think dating culture nowadays can be very toxic and based on experience it’s all about playing games. Writing this song was super fun and empowering because it describes the woman picking up on toxic behavior and giving her partner a taste of their own medicine. Being the second song of my upcoming EP called ‘what u want is mine’ it’s a necessary topic to address when talking about female empowerment and standing up for oneself. With that being said it also underlines the importance that women should never be judged for wanting the same sexual intimacy as men.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

I always try to be as honest as possible when it comes to sharing my thoughts through songwriting. But I think the most vulnerable and open lyrics I’ve written are definitely in my title track from my album ‘Fallen Angel’.

Favourite album of the past decade?

It’s really tough to narrow it down to one specific one but I’d say dangerous woman by Ariana Grande and before love came to kill us by Jessie Reyez are definitely always on repeat.

What would be your dream performance venue?

MSG is definitely at the top of my list but a sentimental venue to perform at would be the entertainment center in Brisbane since that was my first big concert venue I went to.

In which state of mind do you imagine people listen to your music?

I love to imagine that people play my music as a confidence boost whenever they’re feeling down or doubt themselves.

Thank you!
