I wrote this song about people being completely unaware of their impact on others and constantly blaming external sources for their own mistakes. The intention behind the lyrics is not what is described. It is rather the description of one experience with ignorance and to be aware of what living in numbness is like so one knows what not to be
Although Zenia’s “High” features dark tones in the instrumentation, there is some sort of an airy element to it. Probably it is in the vocals with their light yet raspy tones. You can the airy element mainly in the chorus when the singer sings “I’m so high, high, high” in a staccato beat that goes upwards. Yet, there is a time when the vocals are grounded in a low melody. This is during the break towards the end, which offers a nice contrast and makes an interesting turn in the song’s progress.
The dark yet melodic instrumentations help to guide the vocals on the song’s journey. The vocals are one-half of the song’s main stars. The other half is the lyrics which are cleverly written to help tell the main message quoted above. This combination of dark instrumentations, melodic vocals, and relevant lyrics is what makes “High” such an inviting listen. If you are a fan of Maty Noyes and Billie Eilish, you have to check out Zenia’s “High” today!
