KEZRA treads fragile emotional terrain with debut single ‘BETTER PLACE’
In exploring relationships – the disengagement and reconnection of – Melbourne songwriter KEZRA has produced some gorgeous sounds in her debut single, ‘BETTER PLACE’.
KEZRA’s vocals are an immediate stand out on the track; breathy and hypnotic, the way this vocalist makes her presence known on record is truly beautiful. Matched up with great production from Melbourne’s Mark Zito (FRACTURES), ‘Better Place’ could not have been in better hands.
As KEZRA – reflects on the process of working with Zito, the creation of ‘Better Place’ turned the duo into a bit of a music making dream team. “I had this Garageband demo that I sent through to him with piano, vocals and a few guitar riffs. From there, it really became more than I ever imagined. I said to Mark, I want to create something that I can lay there with my headphones and listen to it over and over again. At his home studio in Melbourne, we worked on the track together and had these really awesome ideas that I never would have thought of. From smooth chilled out synth lines to those funky guitar riffs in the choruses…oh my, he was on point as a producer. He just got it.”
With mixing and mastering duties handled by Simon Lam of Kllo fame, ‘Better Place’ firmly sits within the crop of new Melbourne indie music that is positioned for bigger things as the next few months of 2018 continue to reveal themselves..
Fans and newcomers alike will be able to see KEZRA bring ‘Better Place’ and more tasty tidbits of what’s still to come, to the Ontop Bar in Melbourne on May 5th 2018
