ZINNIA is the Toronto-based art pop project of Rachael Cardiello. With layered synth and driving beats, ZINNIA brings an explosive range to Cardiello's writing, equal parts intimate and fierce. 

Since debuting on the Toronto scene with their single Lupins last February, ZINNIA has been turning heads and moving at a whirlwind speed.  In less than a year, they have released four singles to great acclaim, toured across Canada and the US, opened for the legendary Shonen Knife at  POP Montreal, and finally released their album Sensations in Two Dot in a sold out show featuring nine choreographers interpreting the album's nine songs through dance. 


Recently described as “Kate Bush meets Meatloaf” and first to proclaim a deep love for Bruce Springsteen, this is joy with depth, this is salt and sequins, this is ZINNIA.
