Tipped by tastemakers and fellow artists alike, London-based 19-year-old lozeak has today released her infectious new single ‘Used To You’ and announced her upcoming mixtape ‘Gut Feeling’ which will be released on 31st March via Apex Era Recordings / Parlophone.
‘Used to You’ is about the isolating experience of being stuck in your room, and doubles up as a track about the complacent nature of relationships after you’ve been with someone for a while. Speaking about the single lozeak says “I wrote ‘Used To You’ the day after my 17th birthday, in my first ever session with The Nocturns (who are now massive collaborators of the project). I wrote the song about feeling detached from reality and the outside world after lockdown ended. A few years later listening back to the song made me realise I relate to it in a different way – I was in a long term relationship and got way too comfortable. I really want all my fans to interpret the song however they want to, just like I did!”
Ahead of her sold out debut headline show at Camden Assembly on 4th April and festival slots over the summer, lozeak has already cultivated a huge online presence with over 610k followers and 49 million likes on TikTok alone. Her music is winning over famous fans, with Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes, Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and Frank Carter all championing her sound. Tastemakers like Dazed, Clash, Stylist and Wonderland magazines have also tipped her as an artist to watch.
The story of lozeak starts in 2003 in Norwich with two music-obsessed parents blasting drum and bass awaiting the birth of their second child in an attempt to imbue rhythm and a flare for music into her DNA. It worked. A childhood spent exploring the sounds of Luther Vandross, Madonna and Amy Winehouse gave way to her teenage years when she transitioned to diverse artists like Avril Lavigne, Kehlani and Radiohead – inspiring her grungy, rock-pop edge of today. With a huge online fanbase eagerly awaiting the release of ‘Gut Feeling’, she has well and truly earned her status as the UK’s next rising star.
