Zefereli – ‘Once In A While’
Zefereli — the solo project of The Cairos lead singer Alistar Richardson — has dropped a cute music video for recent single Once In A While.
In the track’s video, the song’s smooth indie-rock vibes are teamed up with the story of an alien and his love troubles. Don’t worry, though, there is a happy ending.
“It’s about letting go of what you’ve been trying to do, and the ups and downs of playing music, relationships and friends,” Richardson says. “It’s a song about a moment in time, about frustrations of repeating the same mistakes, but it’s also uplifting with a glimpse towards the future. It even has a piano solo!”
Once In A While is the first track from Zefereli’s forthcoming debut album Withdrawals, which Richardson says is about reconnecting with music.
“I wanted to re-discover what it was that made me so exited about music as a teenager again, which was discovering sounds for myself, sitting with a guitar and playing it for hours and hours,” he says. “With this project, I’ve really re-learned that enjoyment and self-discovery of music”.
