INTERVIEW | Pop Quartet SZNS Release Empowering New Single “Behave”
Are you looking for your next powerhouse all-female pop group? Let me introduce you to SZNS.
The pop-quartet is made up of Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn and they each bring their own unique vocals and styles together to create their signature sound.
Recently, the fresh new pop group released their empowering new single titled “Behave”.
“Behave is for every girl who’s been told to act like a lady: to sit up straight, be polite, to let the grown ups talk. Our entire lives we’ve been told that we’re “doing too much” or “too intense”,” explains the group. “Behave is about being your unapologetic self despite what anyone else might say. If being demure and soft-spoken is good behavior, well we never learned how to behave. This song was inspired by every person in our lives, parents, teachers, coaches, bosses that have tried to tell us how to live our lives and to them we say thanks, but no thanks.”
With their sound, they aim to create a fresh new take on the classic 90’s girl group music we all know and love- blending EDM, latin-synth, and house inspired beats. Their relatable and empowering tracks call to girls, as well as anyone feeling pressured into submission to address and disrupt the status quo.
Aside from the music, Autumn and Winter share their personal connection with this unique release.
“Being from Indiana, I always felt kind of boxed in. To be traditional and follow the “status quo.” But when I moved out here and started writing with the girls, I felt empowered to be who I am. I came out as pansexual and I’m proud to feel comfortable in my skin. Behave encourages you to break the mold and speak your truth. I’ll never go back in a box & I hope this song makes you feel empowered to do the same.“ explains Winter
“I was always scared to come out as bi because of people thinking it’s just a phase, or she’s just doing it for attention. Writing Behave with the support of the band and everyone sharing this same universal feeling in the writing process really helped me say “You know what? This is me. If you think it’s bad behavior well I never f***** learned how to behave.” explains Autumn.
“I’m so excited for this year, we’ve been working a ton on some upcoming projects. A ton of new music that we all really love, some videos, and maybe even some live performances! Also maybe be on the lookout for some eyeliner and other goodies.” explains Summer.
