There are many sides of ZHU, but most of us fans know him for his dusky and moody grooves. Today he leaves that sound in the dark to unveil a bright, uplifting new single by the name of “Monster,” featuring multi-platinum One Direction co-writer (and co-producer), John the Blind.
Given the caliber of two such songwriters like ZHU and John, it’s no surprise that “Monster” is an immediate bop. From the first second, John starts crooning the catchy hook (which is the definition of an ear worm). ZHU then comes through with groovy 2-step rhythm to get you up on your feet. The deal is sealed with the inclusion of some wonky synths, which gives the tune just enough bite.
This one’s definitely giving us some more commercial leaning Generationwhy vibes, and in a good way. We’ve been smashing that replay button all morning.
