Three years ago, ZZ Ward, née Zsuzsanna Eva Ward, burst on the scene and reminded us all to break up the constant sonic stream of lo-fi indie and mediocre pop songs with a healthy dose of blues and neo-soul. Now, after delivering us boisterous anthems like “Cinnamon Stix” and “Put the Gun Down,” the singer-songwriter is displaying a new, sweeter sound with her single “LOVE 3X.”
While it’s certainly a folk song at heart, Ward infuses “LOVE 3X” with shimmering bubblegum pop beats. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself muttering it under your breath all day—it’s as infectious and catchy as anything. Do you love love love it?
