In the video, gorgeous imagery mingles seamlessly with the lyrics to create innovative accessibility that highlights the emotions behind the extended metaphor. The song is at once dark and uplifting, with a relatable message that perfectly encapsulates the desperation of clinging to defunct relationships and how it feels to change who you are in service of others.

For Z Chambers, the metaphor is a representation of what it felt like to maintain any semblance of balance in his life as he struggled to keep things from falling apart.
“When I was writing Tightrope, I was in a difficult place,” said Z, who wrote the song for his upcoming EP along with a co-writer. “I felt like I had to walk on eggshells to avoid upsetting [anyone]. It was like a masquerade. I had to wear a different mask depending on who I was around. It was suffocating. I wanted to capture these feelings in a song.”
Tightrope is already receiving praise from fans on social media excited to see new music from the young artist.
Z continues to work on his new EP with his co-writer. Of this collaboration, he said, “Exchanging our thoughts on the song proved to be a fascinating experience, and I’m confident that many others have experienced something similar. The power of collective creativity and shared emotions is truly special.”
