J. Zunz: Four Women And Darkness

J. Zunz will be releasing her second album, Hibiscus, August 21st, 2020 through Rocket Recordings. Following the impressive debut single and video for Y, the artist now unveils another visual, this time for the track Four Women And Darkness which was first screened as part of Sofasonic Festival, since J. Zunz was set to play Supersonic this year as part of the label's showcase.

Lorena Quintanilla, the creative force behind the J. Zunz moniker, reveals the inspiration behind the song: "Four Women And Darkness is a story from my grandmother’s childhood. She told me that once during wartime in México in the late 1920’s, she and her sisters were hidden by her grandmother in a little, cold secret room. She hid them there because the militia wanted to search the house. Soldiers used to look for women or girls to rape them or to kidnap them. My grandmother and her sisters stayed there in the dark room for hours until the soldiers left.

"I asked four close friends of mine to express their own darkness," she continues. "They all come from different cities and backgrounds. I instructed them with some movements remarking and reassuring the limits of our bodies, which for years have belonged to everyone but us."
