Naarm/Melbourne-based artist Zachary Leo is once again gracing our playlists with his latest single, ‘Time After Time’, set to release tomorrow on the 26th of October and which we are proud to premiere today along with the video.
Produced and mixed by the maestro Tobias Priddle and mastered by the talented Pieter De Wagter, this track is an infectious blend of rhythms and melodies that showcases Zachary Leo’s distinctive style.
‘Time After Time’ stands out with its seamless fusion of infectious rhythms and soulful melodies. Leo’s spirited vocals soar above punching bass lines and retro synthesizers, creating a modern funk masterpiece. From the very first notes, you’ll find yourself entrapped in its magnetic rhythm, a catchy tune that’s guaranteed to stay with you all day. Leo says of the track:
‘Time After Time’ is a song about a conflict that has arisen between two people in a relationship, when one person isn’t being the best version of themselves. The song is sung from that persons perspective as they try to piece together what has caused these problems and how they can make amends. The song constantly shifts between external and internal dialogue and is a mirror into overthinking and overanalysing situations.
It’s the kind of song you’d expect to hear while rummaging through vintage clothing racks at your local thrift store, or as the soundtrack to a sun-soaked picnic with your closest friends, complete with chilled moscato. The groove is irresistible, and the lyrics are the perfect companion to a carefree day.
‘Time After Time’ isn’t just about auditory pleasures; it’s also a visual treat. The music video, meticulously directed, shot, and edited by Brandon Carr Films, transports us to a lush field. The camera’s lens weaves a dreamy tapestry, combining retro aesthetics with a modern charm. The video showcases multiple still shots of Zachary Leo as his own band, creating a nostalgic vibe, almost like a retro novelty. It’s a trendy feast for the eyes that perfectly complements the track’s sonic journey.
