Liverpool’s acclaimed singer songwriter Zuzu is back with an anthemic new track that comes in the form of ‘Lie To Myself’. Written as a song in which someone searches for comfort in ignorance, Zuzu says:
“‘Lie To Myself’ is about the process of coming out of denial, about that fragile state in-between a breakup where you’re strong enough to leave but not quite yet strong enough to face the full truth. The realisation that you’ve been living through a toxic relationship whether that be romantic or even professional and the impact that has on your mental health. It can be emotionally crippling leaving something behind that you’ve leaned on for so many years. It can feel like learning to breathe again. The song is about those times you hear their name or see a picture, whatever it might be that triggers that knot in your stomach. It’s about not wanting to hear the details about what happened, having no control over your emotional reaction to other people’s actions past, present and future. I’m still learning how to set boundaries in life, for myself more than anyone. Trying to stop my anxieties from spiralling out of control and not letting outside influences affect me. Protect your magic, it’s precious!”
