Social media star and rising alt-pop singer Lozeak takes us on a ride in new single “Hate Me Too”
The song is an arena anthem in the making, capturing the anxiety felt by Gen Z – “At the end of the day I would hate me too if I was my friend,” she sings softly before it implodes.
Now she is showing that she has a sound all of her own, and the capabilities to create big, diaristic pop music with a scuzzy edge to it. 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.
lozeak shares about the new single, “I wrote ‘Hate Me Too’ about a friend throwing away a friendship because of a stupid reason – where you have been made out to be a shitty person when you’re not. When I started going to London at 16 to work on my music, I felt like I lost a lot of friends from Norwich because I was so busy and didn’t go home often. I found it frustrating when nobody understood at the time, but writing angry songs like ‘Hate Me Too’ made me feel better about it. The tone is quite sarcastic – joking that I would ‘Hate Me Too’ if I was my mate, when in reality I wouldn’t.”
A childhood spent exploring the sounds of Luther Vandross, Madonna, and Amy Winehouse gave way to her teenage years when she transitioned to artists like Avril Lavigne, Kehlani and Radiohead – inspiring her grungy, rock-pop edge of today.
With a huge online fanbase eagerly awaiting her next move, lozeak is quickly establishing herself as the artist to watch out for in 2022.
