It’s beautifully filmed and deeply personal. “My little sister is going to be in the video,” the 21-year-old told me when I interviewed her at Coachella.
“There’s definitely a narrative because the story that I’m telling in ‘Mustang Kids,’ which is relatable to a lot of kids across the country that don’t come from much but are very passionate and ambitious,” she continues. “I grew up in a very small town. I didn’t know anybody in LA. I didn’t have connections, but I love to play music and there was a fire beneath me and within me that legitimately drove me out of my town and placed me in a new city amongst new people to keep chasing what I wanted to chase.”
“It’s possible, no matter who you are, so that’s what ‘Mustang Kids’ is about,” Zella concludes. “It’s about talking about that fire within you and that’s what I’m trying to portray within the video.” Watch up top.
