Painted Zeros is the project created by Katie Lau, a sound engineer by night, and a musician/songwriter by day. Lau has been writing and recording since the release of her 2014 E.P. S V A B A R D and is set to release her second full-length release When You Found Forever (Don Giovanni) on May 29, 2020. The new album marks a bit of a change from her debut Floriography 5 years ago. It’s more than a change though, it’s growth.
One of the main factors from one album to the next is her 3-year sobriety but her debut showed a promise that her sophomore release we may now find Lau exploring. Her single, “Commuter Rage,” is fitted with distorted guitars juxtaposed against her sweet vocals. Here she doesn’t give us what we want, she gives us what we need. Today, Painted Zeros shares the new single and visuals for the single “Break.” It’s the softer side of Painted Zeros and again, yes, it’s what we all need.
