Since returning to Milwaukee more than three years ago, Zed Kenzo has quietly been putting together material for a true blue full-length project, but only allowing listeners to peek behind the creative curtain in a live show setting (save for occasional singles). While the taxing process of producing all her own beats and her ongoing quest to confirm some featured musicians saw 2017 come and go without a debut album, it was still Zed’s biggest year to date.
She has bigger things in store for 2018, with her long-awaited record expected to finally see the light of day in June. Before then, Zed Kenzo wants to tide over listeners. Today, which is Zed’s birthday, she’s giving the gift of a new music video. “Touchdown” was shot last summer in the Lincoln Warehouse by Emry Brisky and Zachary Krueger. The two-minute effort doesn’t need much time to make an impact, as strobe lights, ghostly effects, and Zed’s trademark ominous production leaves its mark.
As you wait for Zed Kenzo’s new album and her Milwaukee Day show at Company Brewing on April 14, watch the “Touchdown” music video now.
