Queer pop sensation Zolita releases hot new single and video

Alt-pop sensation, songwriter, and filmmaker Zolita has released her new single and video “Ashley” from her highly anticipated Falling Out / Falling In EP (out February 10).

“Ashley” is a stripped-back and heartfelt love song which picks up directly where her previous single “Ruin My Life” left off. Zolita is getting ready for Ashley’s wedding while unearthing old memories of young love between her and the bride-to-be. The video is the next installment in Zolita’s new cinematic story that began with her recent singles “20 Questions” and “Ruin My Life.”

“‘Ashley’ is a sapphic love song written for my close friend, now girlfriend,” shares Zolita. “It’s a song about yearning, falling in love, and knowing the lows that inevitably come with a relationship will be worth it. It’s sickly sweet and one of the most earnest, heartfelt songs I’ve ever written. It’s the queer ‘Hey There Delilah’ I wish I had growing up!”

Stream “Ashley” here.

The new EP Falling Out / Falling In and its accompanying video series are all one self-realized journey that began with pop anthem “20 Questions” which saw Zolita interrogate an unfaithful ex before imagining her revenge, and continued with her recent single “Ruin My Life,” which captures the feeling of falling so hard for someone that nothing else matters.

For Zolita, every song begins with an elaborate movie in her mind, and she directs, edits, and produces all of her colorful, narrative-driven music videos, combining her passions for filmmaking with her commitment to LGBTQ experiences and storytelling. A multidimensional artist, Zolita is also a compelling live performer and will be embarking on a run of U.S. headline dates kicking off February 18 with an already sold-out show in Washington, D.C.
