Indie-rock’s finest offering, Hongza releases his music video for Cure Me, following his recent EP, Gen Z. Have an exclusive first look at the video here at Louder Than War.
With growing support from Live Nation, Apple and Spotify, the buzz that is surrounding London-based, Hongza is no secret. Combine this with a TikTok influencer career and Hongza’s reflection on Gen Z life becomes more and more apparent. His open and warm attitude towards being a musician is one that adds to his endearing character and is helping him harvest the success he deserves.
Speaking to Louder Than War exclusively, Hongza states, “Cure Me was one of the first songs I wrote for Gen Z. It means so much to me because it’s about coming out of a bad place through growing up, finding love & comfort from the closest people to you. I wanted to capture all the things that helped to cure me on film and turn it into the video. Pure & Authentic moments.”
Cure Me can easily be applied to the world’s current pandemic situation. The track is about finding your true friends, spending time with your family and learning to love yourself during a rough time; Hongza applies this message to the world as we slowly ease out of lockdown,
“Cure Me [was] originally about growing up and recovering from a break-up but I realised the track is more than that. It’s about surrounding yourselves with people that support you and help to mend you during such a hard time like lockdown. My friends, family, girlfriend are the people that have kept me sane during a tough period of my life. I always thought my mental health was so strong, but lockdown showed me that it wasn’t. I’m so glad to have had these people in my life help me come out ‘normal’ coming out of lockdown.”
