Press Play: Zoë Hines – ‘tooth gems’

Brooklyn-based artist Zoë Hines releases ‘tooth gems’, her first single of 2023, following the release of ‘Never Fall in Love’ in December and ‘CAMERA SHY’ (Indigo Plateaux & Dillon Lucas Remix) in January. Produced by XAV., ‘tooth gems’ is an infectious and radiant track about the initial feelings of a relationship and the curiosity of what it could turn into.

“The beginning of liking someone is always a rollercoaster of emotions,” Zoë says of the track. “In the moment, everything about that person makes you light up. Nothing feels better than having someone that makes you feel that way. It then becomes a constant wonder on whether or not it will work out or if it’s just something temporary.”

To coincide with the release, Zoë shares a visual of the track shot at Weekend 1 of Coachella by Lanre Danmola (Kevin Gates, HBK Dinero, Huey Brisss). The video recaps her experiences throughout each day of the festival, showcasing joyous moments from performances by Kaytranada, Metro Boomin’, Blackpink and more.

Zoë Hines became obsessed with music at an early age, with the bass of her dad’s speakers vibrating every wall in the house growing up. Utilizing what she heard as a kid – along with influences from artists including Mac Miller, The Internet, SYD, Omar Apollo, Frank Ocean and Orion Sun – the Brooklyn-based, New Jersey-raised artist began to experiment with her own Soundcraft, creating timeless stories for listeners searching for answers in the deepest part of their psyche.
