Producer-songwriter Zsüd drops her new song about the well-known concept from the corporate world –
glass ceiling. The difference from the previous tracks is not only in genre, but this song was a working
material in a program called ‘Songlab’ organized by the Hungarian Music Export Office, HOTS. Here Zsüd
worked with British producer John Foyle /Gorillaz, Blur/.
‘Spending a day with John was amazing! Not only did I learn a few new tricks, but the way John works
made a huge impact on me. Even though we worked quite fast, the general mood was so light and easy
all along. I have a habit of stressing in these situations and it was very refreshing to experience how easy
this can be.’ – says Zsüd about working with John Foyle.
The debut album ‘REWIRING’ from Zsüd was released a year ago – although that also covered quite a
wide range of genres, ‘Glass Ceiling’ is slightly different from them. It is inspired by personal events, it is a
channel for letting some steam go, and making some boundaries in situations an average woman usually
faces on the labor market.
‘As for the instrumentation, this song has a slight sexy vibe, which is in strong contrast with the main
topic. That represents a dilemma I am interested in nowadays. As a woman in many cases you are forced
to take on masculine skills in order to make progress. However in the long term that leaves a mark, and
the question is whether you can switch back and forth. For me it is a very interesting journey to connect
with my feminin side, not only as a human being, but as a creator as well. I also have to relearn that in
many cases making a decision based on intuition can be just as valid as trusting in logic.’ – says Zsüd
about the song.
You can catch Zsüd live on the 16th of June playing in Budapest, alongside Kozmofobe.
