Zosia Premieres New Song “Overthrown” on SoundCloud
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Anneke Lada, aka Zosia has delivered a new song “Overthrown” via SoundCloud.
She debuted with "Water" last November, “Overthrown” is her second single.
The sound is the cinematic, and melody with vocoder reminds us of Imogen Heap. But the song is a message of her experiences as a sexual assault victim and survivor.
Like the floodgates that opened with the #MeToo movement. She wrote the song two years ago. At that time, she did not plan to release it, but she feels that the song can help sexual assault victims, decided to release.
Zosia said of the song;
"I want pop music to stop contributing to a culture that places a woman's value in the hands of her lover. Allowing a man to shape our self-worth can be especially dangerous if it was a man's actions that damaged it in the first place. As a victim myself, I have spent my life battling shame and issues of self worth. I was depressed and angry for ever other victim who has faced and will face this sort of dismissal of their pain."
She stated on Instagram;
"When I wrote Overthrown two years ago I didn’t plan on releasing it. I was afraid of being judged or offending anyone with the sensitive subject matter. Then the #metoo movement began and proved that silence has only helped in perpetuating the stigma, and that change will only come with more honesty and conversation.
By sharing our stories and the mosaic of emotions they provoke, we can help victims feels less alone as they heal. If you have been affected by sexual assault, I hope this song can remind you that you do not carry the anger and shame alone - all of us, victims or not, carry it with you. Nor are you alone when you embrace the strength that comes from confronting your past. This journey belongs to all of us."
