As her lyrics get weirder and the beats get faster, Zombie-Chang improves upon her techno-pop sound with Stress de Stress. Pre-release singles “PaRappa the Gabber” and “Stress” perfectly embody Stress’ new intensity and are great tasters of the rest of the work. The acid techno and EDM of Take Me Away From Tokyo are joined by their eccentric cousins hardstyle and gabber, while lyrics will have you seriously questioning your sanity – an ode to Nintendo (“Switch”) and a celebration of knitting (“Granny Square”) are just the tip of the iceberg. In short, Stress de Stress is a fantastic addition to Zombie-Chang’s playfully absurd, blaringly unconventional and frankly bonkers discography.
