EZA's 'Headlights' video is a synesthetic breakup jam

Posted on

Mikaela Hamilton

Like a lot of creative people, Nashville electropop artist EZA experiences a neurological condition called synesthesia, a blurring of the senses that allows one to, for instance, “see” music as colors, or vice versa. She calls it “headlights,” and it’s the inspiration for a new single of the same name—a breakup song that juxtaposes its bittersweet subject matter against an electronic arrangement that borders on the triumphant.

You can buy “Headlights” on iTunes now.
