Glasgow-based singer-songwriter Zoe Graham infuses her indie-pop with a bright, self-assured quality, juxtaposing familiar catchiness with a sharp edge.

Her latest single 'Evilin' is a brass-backed odyssey delving into the tumultuous journey of entanglement with someone toxic. With guitars intertwining plush synths and tautly machined drums, Zoe's musical influences range from the likes of Kate Bush to St Vincent and Beck, creating a sound both familiar and refreshingly unique.

"'Evilin' is a battle cry", Zoe declares. "It embodies the turmoil of intentional confusion, portraying a figure who's simultaneously relied upon and feared".

Zoe reflects on the creation of the video for ‘Evilin’, envisioning a collision between Fanny Cradock and Killing Eve's Villanelle in a prim and proper cooking show, ultimately enlisting her mother for the starring role. "Watching your own mother wreak havoc amidst cakes and jelly, soundtracked by my new single, was a surreal experience", Zoe shares, underscoring the bold and stylish essence of the music video.
