[Premiere] French singer HEZEN’s “Whole” broods with dark pop intensity

London-based French singer/producer HEZEN’s cinematic dark pop is coming for you witches. With Caribbean, Tamil, and Jewish origins, she grew up outside Paris with a family history of displacement, resistance, and resilience. Finding escape in fairy tales, myths, and science fiction, she began writing songs as a young teenager. Her postgrad studies would bring her to London where she’d discover the electronic music scene, and as a result, began penning tracks as HEZEN.

Drawing on themes of femininity, strength and vulnerability, HEZEN creates a seductive and dangerous universe that is organic and synthesised, tender and brutal. We’re happy to premiere her new single “Whole,” which appears off her 4-track sophomore EP “Safe + Bound,” out tomorrow.

“These songs are like little amulets I collected over a year, each representing a feeling, an emotion that, once upon a time, I would have tried to bury deep down,” HEZEN says of the EP as a whole. “They’re reminders that there’s beauty everywhere. Even in loneliness and chaos.”

“Safe + Bound” EP Tracklisting:
1. Bring Your Alibi
2. Terrible Animals
3. Whole
4. Into The Light
