Ana ZimmerThere’s a huge wave of young singer-songwriters coming out creating brooding almost ethereal indie pop-rock. It started with Lana Del Rey and many have tried to follow in her footsteps with varying degrees of success. However, Paris-born Ana Zimmer has the chance to be the one that matches the success of the Brooklyn artist. Her latest single, “Young and Brave”, utters with a dark coolness accentuated by Zimmer’s haunting vocals and the hallow throbbing of the electronic beats in the background.

On her debut single, “Live It All”, which was released a year ago, Zimmer also demonstrated this ability to match pulsating rhythms with lush melodies. The two singles also show a young woman with huge songwriting potential. Her lyrics are honest and straightforward. There’s no beating around the bush with Zimmer. In addition, unlike many young songwriters, she’s not depending on a repetitive chorus to drive the song home – it’s the entire combination of the clever word play, the stunning melodies, and the driving beats that carry each track. This is why we think Ana Zimmer has a chance to achieve stardom.

“Young and Brave” is one of 23 fantastic singles on the June 12th edition of The Weekend Showcase, which is a weekly playlist featuring new music from around the world.
