ZINNIA's artful storm of indie rock brings an explosive range to Rachael Cardiello's writing: equal parts intimate and fierce. Making CBC's list of "Best Lyrics of 2019" and turning heads with their genre-crossing collaborations, ZINNIA is unflinching in its exploration of grief, mental illness, and joy with depth.
Their debut album Sensations in Two Dot seeks to find compassion within moments of doubt. With the release of Sensations, ZINNIA established itself as an innovative and confident voice in the arts - reaching beyond music to collaborate with dancers, visual artists and filmmakers. Their sold-out Toronto album release show Through the Prism of Dance featured nine choreographers and eleven dancers interpreting the album songs through dance. These pieces were later re-interpreted and filmed in each choreographer's place of isolation during the 2020 pandemic in the series Sensations in Lockdown.
