Recently described as “Kate Bush meets Meatloaf” and first to proclaim a deep love for Bruce Springsteen, Shostakovitch and Big Thief, ZINNIA is the Toronto-based art pop project of Rachael Cardiello. Zinnia have found an identity carved from that vintage 80s sound, yet err more towards new romanticism and dream-pop. With layered synth and driving beats, ZINNIA brings an explosive range to Cardiello’s writing, equal parts intimate and fierce.
