It’s the sweet, drifting lilt of a voice that gets you first. Then it’s the poppy, floaty melodies. That’s the charm of Zoe Konez – her unapologetic pop. But there’s also a handful of folk thrown in there… A beautifully heartfelt sound that might move even the most jaded heart at 1am after a long day.
Konez has been recording since 2014 but has been involved in music her whole life. She’s been bringing her acoustic vibes to the table for some time now. She says that she wants to re-balance the gender issue in folk and she certainly seems to be doing so. These are gloriously melancholy folk stories told in the most reverie style of gauzy, pop sounds. It’s a fine combination. Her breathy vocals on tracks like “For all ex lovers” kind of encapsulate what I’m saying.
She’s played across Europe and the UK and been promoted by 6 Music. Usually playing bigger venues make the Camden Chapel a sweet, intimate gig instead. Pull together the pieces of your broken heart, put up your umbrella and head out to this gig.
