Zilla With Her Eyes Shut is a classical pianist who turned pop surrealist whose music coaxes the subconscious to come out and play. “Whisper Whisper” is the first single from her self-titled debut album which was released in March via Accidental Records.
Zilla says: “This story comes from the childhood trauma I went through, I started hearing whispers in my head when I was about 10, right about the time I started playing the piano. It is a joyful track because the imaginary friend made me feel like I wasn’t alone and instead of acting out the violence, at least it only happened in my head like a big explosion of sounds, words and colors.”
Recorded with renowned experimental producer Matthew Herbert, the beats on Zilla’s debut material were made by turning objects collected by Zilla into conceptual instruments.
