NYC synthpop to keep an ear on: EZI

NYC synthpop to keep an ear on: EZI

Sofar Sounds has released EZI's performance of "Anxious", a track from her debut EP Afraid of the Dark. The songstress -- whose real name is Esther Zynn -- released the EP at the beginning of the year, having written the songs during what she calls the lowest point in her life. However, with her powerful voice and catchy synthpop arrangements rife with gripping and vulnerable lyrics, things are looking up for EZI; she's the first signee to Steve Madden's 5Towns Records, and she's played shows all across the country over the last few months. In a recent Facebook post, she says she's the happiest she's been "in forever." Take a listen to her recent video for single 'Redemption" and to the Sofar performance of "Anxious" below. - Will Sisskind
