It’s a promising first taste of Zac Robertson’s forthcoming debut solo album.
Having honed his sound as a session guitarist, songwriter and producer for the likes of JEAYDEN, Dandecat, Rya Park and ALLIPHA, as well as sharing festival stages with acts like Bootleg Rascal, Billy Davis and Motorace, Melbourne-based musician Zac Robertson is stepping out as a solo artist with his debut single, ‘Closer’.
Inspired by the London jazz and soul scene, ‘Closer’ is bursting with laidback groove. Featuring smooth as butter vocals from Ash Kennedy, the track just oozes cool.
The first single from his forthcoming debut solo album Polar Opposite, ‘Closer’ suggests Robertson is packing big potential. Melding slick licks of guitar, a neo-soul rhythm and splashes of keys, it’s impossible not to dance along to and is bound to have you reaching for the ‘replay’ button.
Listen to ‘Closer’ below.
