Zyna Hel: ‘Catacombs’


Self-proclaimed disco witch Zyna Hel has landed with an impressive new bombastic hit ‘Catacombs’. Produced by Benjamin Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons), this is a welcome marriage of Hel’s lighter pop elements and Power’s harsh electro-pneumatic beats.

Catacombs is about the sometimes complicated relationships between mothers and daughters, and the ways in which we inherit patterns from our parents and often repeat their mistakes, or their behaviour unconsciously. It’s in part inspired by Persephone’s descent into Hades and her mother Demeter’s frantic search for her. I’ve always been fascinated by this myth, and I really relate to Persephone and her journeys in and out of the Underworld. Ultimately in the song there is a release from this damaging symbiotic relationship through the practice of self-awareness and self-creation, Zyna explains.
