Rising indie-pop artist, Jeff Draco, shares his new release, “Desiderium,” out now.
The track is completely composed, mixed, and mastered entirely by Draco himself. The track finds him detailing the deterioration of friendships, “people seemingly drifting apart without reason and wishing it was easier to return to better days of the past.” Check out the music video below.
The track allows Draco to explore his emotional side through the use of dreamy synths, while still allowing him to create illustrative songwriting.
“‘Desiderium’ is about coming to terms with friends slowly growing apart and trying to get back to ‘the days’ of the past,” shares Jeff Draco. “The song explores trying to understand a new normal of the confused distance between people. I wrote the song as a ballad in 2015 but revisited the idea and rewrote lyrics in 2021. As for the video, I wanted to focus on visual elements and aesthetics (like the recurring yellow) over a particular storyline. We wanted to capture a real feeling surrounding every scene and for viewers to gain their interpretation. I feel we did that – I hope others see it, too.”
