Antigoni Releases Seductive Duet ‘Messy’ ft Zion Foster

Following up from heartfelt ballad Long Way Home,’ Antigoni is ready to release her first track of 2023 with alluring club anthem ‘Messy‘, featuring R&B artist Zion Foster

Starting off this latest release acoustically with just vocals and a guitar, it is only a few moments before the drum beat kicks in, letting us know this track will be anything but a slow burn. Antigoni’s rich tone and sultry voice is instantly recognisable as is her sound, sweetly complimented by Zion Foster’s smooth vocals, making for a hot n’ heavy duet. When asked about its roots, she shares “Messy is about a situationship that no-one knows about, which is what makes it more exciting. It’s about passion & seduction in the shadows & the potential of it getting ‘Messy’ if it’s not kept that way.” 

This is Antigoni’s first collaboration with Zion Foster and they’ve had the pleasure of sharing the track onstage already before its official release, including at a sold out headline show at XOYO, and a private performance at one of her star-studded house parties. “We’ve already performed the song live a couple times & it’s been lit.” 

Antigoni is an artist who knows who she is and what she wants to say, and by the sounds of it she’s having fun doing it. “The collaboration process with Zion was really organic; I just dmed him about the idea & sent him the song and he loved it. Within a couple weeks he came to the studio & we finished it. He’s super talented & brought the perfect energy to the song” 

The steady ascent of Antigoni has her carving out a sound for herself that perfectly blends both her Greek Cypriot roots and London surroundings. This duet is another reminder of both her influences and where she is heading; towards a sound that is uniquely her own. 

A live video is on its way, and the track is out now.
