Zuzu is currently taking her brand of hypnotic indie-pop melodies on the road around the country with the hard feat of warming up the Courteeners crowd every night for the next few weeks and showing why she is the next exciting exports from the music capital of Britain, Liverpool.
Opening in an arena can be a daunting task but Zuzu and her band didn’t look intimidated in the slightest on Saturday evening at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, an event that signalled the biggest show of her career to date and was one she won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
Supporting is rarely easy, but fortunately, this half an hour set went swimmingly as the crowd were really receptive to her even if she went in as an unknown quantity to many, they definitely ended up leaving the show as fans.
Zuzu proudly wears her Scouse heritage on her sleeve with her songs being reminiscent of other indie heroes who also hail from Merseyside such as the dreamy Hooton Tennis Club and The Coral with a tinge of Courtney Barnett thrown into the mix for good measure.
Check out her latest single ‘Dark Blue’ below:
Following the recent success of ‘Dark Blue’ earlier this autumn combined with ending 2018 on such a high note as she plays to the biggest crowds of her career with the run culminating at the legendary Brixton Academy in December which is certainly one way to finish the year in style.
Next year looks set to follow on from where this one ends with sets already announced for Live At Leeds and The Great Escape in Brighton next summer which are both hotbeds for new British talent with 2019 looking set to be the year for the release of her long-awaited debut and to announce herself to the world.

22nd Glasgow, Stereo
23rd Leeds, The Wardrobe
