Zoe Wees - Hold Me Like You Used To (DSCVR | Vevo)

2 Views· 02/06/21

Zoe Wees - Hold Me Like You Used To. An exclusive performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.

Zoe Wees has only released a handful of songs, but she already feels like a force to be reckoned with. The German powerhouse grew up in Hamburg, where she spent time crafting songs in English and honing her guitar and piano skills. Covers of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” are some of the earliest posts on her YouTube channel. But Wees always had her own story to tell. “Control” is a power ballad inspired by her battles with benign rolandic epilepsy and the mental anguish it caused. Her breakout debut, it struck a chord; “Control” has been watched more than 40 million times. Next on Zoe’s to-do list was tackling the unfair beauty standards perpetuated by social media. So the Jessie J acolyte dropped “Girls Like Us,” a marching song for those battling the myths of physical perfection. Again, Wees’ effort was met with applause from both fans and critics. “I love dark songs, I love deep songs. Music was my diary. It still is,” she’s said. In a way, both her debut EP ‘Golden Wings’ and our DSCVR performances of “Girls Like Us” and “Hold Me Like You Used To” feel like she’s giving us a glimpse into personal journal entries. We’re lucky she’s so candid.
