Beat Lab Academy: Beat Lab Reviews – Fresh Tracks of the Week October 19th, 2018

October 19, 2018

"ZØYA's voice is incredibly powerful on this newest single, So Far Away. ZØYA has a history in making church music, her faith is tangible in this song. The production is beautiful on the instrumental side and never detracts from her vocals, it only enhances. This is the display of a pure professional – clean production, shining vocals, and emotion bleeding from every note. ZØYA utilizes modern production techniques in the song but her vocals are always the focus, as they should be." - Beat Lab Academy, Michael Wiener

Aipate Magazine: Listen to ZØYA’s “So Far Away”

September 29, 2018

"ZØYA shares a new song, “So Far Away”. The singer/songwriter is an LA-based, independent recording artist whose emotionally-inclined compositions are strongly matched by her powerful vocals. On this new song, she talks about a relationship that turns out to be sour. ZØYA was born Zoya Naumchik in Pinsk, Belarus on September 4, 1993 but she grew up in Columbus, Ohio after she relocated to the US when she was 11 years old. She’s got a long music background and it is this that has propelled her to her current status of being one of the most exciting and promising pop acts." - Aipate Magazine, Phillip Nyalenda

POPMUZIK: ZØYA – So far away (Sweden)

September 18, 2018

"Vi tar oss än en gång till Los Angeles. Där hittar vi sångerskan ZØYA, eller Zoya Naumchik som är hennes hela namn. Hon är nu aktuellt med singeln So far away, där hennes karaktäristiska röst lyfter fram denna sköna och fängslande poplåt.

September 14, 2018

ZØYA has unveil the release of her new single."So Far Away is about a complicated, obsessive, unrequited love relationship that literally almost ate me alive. At one point in my life, I was desperate to find love and encountered someone who seemed ambiguous and ‘so far away’ in his feelings towards me, and that person turned out to be a wrong one at the end. It’s that pivotal moment when you realize that your feelings are unreciprocated, but you’re still hoping for that balanced and healthy relationship..." - VENTS Magazine, RJ Frometa

Atwood Magazine: VIDEO PREMIERE: ZØYA FINDS HER HAPPY PLACE ON “CHAOS IN MY HEAD”

March 02, 2018

"Bombastic dark pop is one of many things that are decidedly in at the moment, and ZØYA’s music taps deep into that sonic temperament: Fat oscillating synths surround her passionate outbursts, elevating her cries to last longer and feel stronger. Still, the song’s anthemic quality tends to mask much of the artist’s pain – something that feels particularly real in this music video, as ZØYA strives for comfort doing what she loves – comfort in being who she is and letting her music speak for itself, rather than donning a fake face to appeal to the “masses"...Also nabbing directorial credits on her video, ZØYA presents herself as the full package – an artist with a distinct vision.” - Atwood Magazine, Mitch Mosk
