Zoe Ko Shares New Single ‘Rib Cage’

NYC-based singer-songwriter Zoe Ko shares her brand new single Rib Cage, a stunning, heartfelt piece of alt-pop music out now via Doorstep Music Group / Double Down Eleven! 
What I like the most about this song is Zoe Ko's stunning vocals and how powerful and passionate her delivery is, packed with raw emotion and soul that is impossible not to feel each and every single word she is singing. Rib Cage is a song about healing, coming to terms with the instability & hardships of her childhood, a realization that homesickness can often be found in a person. A song about how home is wherever the one you love is, Rib Cage is heartbreaking with constantly building instrumentation that concludes with a strong emotional release from the ever-present tension. Apart from her gorgeous vocals and raw lyricism, I am particularly fond of the intricate guitar plucks and steady drum patterns that slowly build up with energy with punchier drum beats and soaring guitars that match the emotional release of both her vocal delivery and lyrics. Such a stunning piece of music packed with emotion and perfect for an introspective moment. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Zoe Ko said, 
'Rib Cage' is about the feeling of homesickness finding itself in a person or partner rather than a physical house. When you find your person and love someone they often become your “home”. I moved so frequently as a kid, had divorced parents and never truly felt settled. I don’t have a family home to go to or reference in my memories so I’ve found the feeling of homesickness attaching itself to a person my whole life. I recently have been dating around and finally have a partner now, and already I can sense myself starting to know them inside and out the way one would memorize every floorboard and paint chip in a family home. This song has helped me come to terms with the feeling of being uprooted and a nomad all my life and redirecting what to focus that feeling on. 'I’m searching through your ribcage like a closet | use your lungs as my pillow | I know you with my eyes closed | like something that I’d miss, you could be nostalgic' pins the feeling of experiencing someone becoming a home.
