Emerging electropop artist Robin Cisek is back with her new video for “Zeus”. Watch it exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Produced by JUNO winning producers Brad Simons and Brandon Unis, Cisek’s new single “Zeus” is her first release since her debut album Delicate Minds in June 2021.
“I wanted to create an upbeat song with building vocals and stacked harmonies that took my listeners to another world,” says Cisek. “I have always enjoyed reading and watching stories from history and the stories about the Greek gods, particularly the ones about Zeus, have always been very interesting to me. Zeus, a Greek god, who many have heard about through story, is not a consistently moral individual through his relationships and violent choices, but he is still idealized for his strength, power and representation of masculinity and he is worshipped for that. I wanted to playfully point out how his immorality is simultaneous but contradictory to his intrigue and godliness to the public as a powerful figure. I wanted to make a connection between relationships and how these contradictions can often create dangerous, harmful, and addictive relationships.”
