“It’s almost like she’s from another planet.” She Does Podcast
Ziemba’s hypnotic songs provide solace during catastrophic weather events, and frequently grace exotic terrain here on planet Earth, from episodes of Comedy Central’s Broad City to the French Institute in Fez, Morocco. Her debut full length Hope is Never provides strong arsenal in the fight against nihilism, with hopeful ballads of decay and the infinite; while her most recent release, LALA, inhabits the psyche of a succubus and smells like juniper berries & dragon’s blood.
“Her cheerily-titled debut album, Hope Is Never, is by turns euphoric, alienating and devastating, and it’s always quietly enthralling.” THE LIST UK
“Ziemba has a voice like the clear blue sky.” THE FADER
“Her songs artfully overlap dream pop and alt-folk in a wistful, fully-realised way.” The Irish Times
“It’s all too easy to place Ziemba in a reductive category of women making otherworldly performance-based pop music, a legacy pioneered by Suzanne Ciani, Kate Bush, and many other prolific artists. Still, this likeness is evident watching Ziemba use her performance as a vehicle to lingering fantasy, her eyes piercing the crowd, demanding to be seen on her terms.” No Fear of Pop
Ziemba’s multisensory performances offer an alchemy that is both alien and familiar. The Brooklyn-based composer, perfumier, geographer, and vocalist builds oozy architectures for her songs using fragrance, costume, and only the most sincere theatrics. She recently founded Ardis Multiverse, a sonic fragrance imprint and artists alliance, and has spent the past year touring nationally and internationally in support of her debut album, “Hope is Never.” She is currently a fire organ artist-in-residence with Guerilla Science, and is hard at work on her forthcoming fragrance/mapping project/album/parallel universe.
