We first came across Ziúr's name on a Facebook event page. She was playing in Berlin in support of Mixmag fave Lotic and after visiting her SoundCloud, we found 'Deeform', a club track that's as dark as they come. All paranoid, weird and positively booming, we knew we'd stumbled across an artist we'd like to hear more from.
Luckily for us, she soon got in touch with 'Lips', another dusky number that ripples with cerebral energy. It comes with a video directed by Dacio Pinheiro and focuses loosely on Ziúr herself, the artist flashing in and out of shot in a very unsettling way. You can see it for the very first time below.
'Lips' drops ahead of Ziúr's tour dates with Peaches, who she's supporting in Europe this month (see them both pictured above).
If you're feeling it, do as we did and hit Ziúr's SoundCloud for the aforementioned 'Deeform' and a great mixtape titled '/xuːx/' which features guest spots from Samantha Urbani and Dev Hynes.
Enjoy the vid and peep the Peaches tour dates below.
