Only 23, Jeremy Zucker entered the high stakes of the music world when his single ‘Heavy’ was remixed into Blackbear’s ‘Make Daddy Proud’ and streamed seemingly endlessly on Spotify. Leaning towards indie-pop, he has six EPs under his belt and is now signed with Republic Records. Keen to maintain a narrative to his EP’s one of his most popular singles—’All the Kids Are Depressed’—led to a selection of socially focused songs, reflecting the struggles of the generation.
