With hypnotizing vocals, Zanya brings a deep atmosphere sprinkled with guitar, making everything blend together beautifully.
This song is about a complex and unpredictable life. A deep message wrapped in an aura that may feel dark at times, and yet she leaves room for hope to shine. This is not a song we’d typically share, but we feel lucky to have become acquainted with it." - ParaPop.net (Indonesia)
“American singer and songwriter Zanya Laurence shares her melancholy-infused song Achilles Tears, written after having to say goodbye to someone she cared deeply about. What I like the most about this song is the emotional and melancholic piano-based melodies that instantly create a warmth that allows for the listener to fully connect with Zanya's vocal delivery and relatable storytelling. Achilles Tears is a song about grief and being in a dark period in her life. Apart from the piano melodies I am very fond of the subtle strings and catchy bass that enhance the song's warmth and intimate atmosphere. Check it out!” -caesarlivenloud.com

Zanya uses the metaphor of the Greek warrior Achilles, known for his vulnerable heel, to represent her own emotional vulnerability in the face of heartbreak. The song was written after Zanya experienced a painful breakup, and it serves as a cathartic expression of the grief and sadness she felt in the aftermath. The lyrics are raw and emotional, and Zanya's powerful vocals convey the depth of her pain and longing." -Death or Desire
