I made Shout to share with the ones who are itching to bust out of their shells, of the boxes other people have built for them. For the awkward dancers, and the crowd-averse. For everyone who ever does anything brave even when it is hard. Whether it’s coming out, or reaching out to people you love who have shut you out.
Zinnia is the Toronto-based art pop project of Rachael Cardiello. With velvety, 80s-inspired layered synth and driving beats, Zinnia brings an explosive range to Cardiello’s writing, equal parts intimate and fierce. Recently described as “Kate Bush meets Meatloaf” and first to proclaim a deep love for Bruce Springsteen, this is Zinnia.
