Thumbs up to anyone that likes Kristen Wiig.

2016 was a good year for London-based electronica artist ZAE, whose smash single 'Letting Go' put her on multiple radars heading into 2017.

Before her new EP comes out, we caught up with ZAE to discuss her love of strong women (including Kristen Wiig), Nutella binges, and pink eye. Check that out below along with her new single, 'Faking Love'.


Describe yourself in 5 words...

Passionate, loyal, straightforward, laid-back, and awkward.

When was the last time you tried something new?

I tried Diet Coke recently after convincing myself for years that I hated it. It's growing on me.

If a movie was made about your life, what actor/actress would play you and what would the film be called?

Kristen Wiig. I feel connected to her on a deeply spiritual level. Also, we both have incredible dance moves. The title - How to balance Netflix and superstardom.

What is the worst thing your parents caught you doing as a kid?

Eating like 12 jars of Nutella within the space of 2 weeks and hiding the empty jars in my bedside drawer so no one would know. My mum found them. She was disgusted.

What inspires you?

Strong ass women doing it.

What did you dream about last night?

I dreamt that my dog gave my girlfriend pink eye after doing a shit under her pillow?

Lastly, what are you currently working on?

An EP is currently in the works. I'm also writing as much as possible.
