Swedish Grammy award winner Zikai returns after a short hiatus with her new single Super 8.
Since winning the Swedish Grammy for Soul/R&B in 2021, Zikai has been busy in the studio creating her sound. With her co-writers, she has created a world of diary-like stories packed with confidence, sensuality, and vulnerability.
Now she returns with Super 8. Super 8 is not a superhero team. For those too young to remember, a Super 8 is a motion picture camera specifically manufactured to use the Super 8mm motion picture format.
As the summer air sways with this track’s pop and R&B vibes, it has instant likability for a wide range of audiences. The production is smooth like glass, while Zikai caresses the notes with lyrics about setting boundaries and reclaiming power.
“I named it Super 8 because during the session, I imagined the song in a movie scene – a hot summer day, palm trees, me driving around in the same yellow Cadillac that Al Pacino drives in Scarface. And all of this would be filmed in Super 8mm. It suited the sound image.” explained Zikai about the track.
It is not difficult to picture the scene as Super 8 fills the airwaves. Even the toughest gangster might wish for a beach getaway after listening to this!
