London-based Zac Pajak releases ‘Not Around’ on November 20th, via Goldun Egg Records. The second track, taken from his debut EP ‘Early Hours’ due for release early 2020. ‘Not Around’ follows the release of debut single ‘Again’ in October ’19.
Zac’s latest offering ‘Not Around’ is awash with alluring textures and urban-pop finesse. The stripped-down introduction quickly gives way to a deep baseline and pulsing electronic atmospheres, as Zac’s soulful vocal finds a strength and clarity in moving on from a relationship.
Speaking about the single Zac quotes: ” ‘Not Around’ is about accepting the absence of a loved one and not allowing it to consume you whilst you try to make sense of it. There’s a strange clarity that can occur from the desolation – it’s the realisation that when you stop looking for other people to make you happy, you learn that it’s you and only you that holds the to key to your happiness”.
The solo artists music career continues to gather pace since being discovered by Jake Gosling (Major Lazer, Wiley, Lady Gaga) and signed to his record label Goldun Egg. Zac’s debut single ‘Again’ was playlisted by Spotify UK, as well as supported by tastemaker websites such as Acid Stag, Indie London and Digital High to name but a few. Zac has also enjoyed songwriting collaborations with the likes of Major Lazer, Mr Eazi, Raye, Danny Jones, NUUX and Dusky Grey.
A seasoned performer with 5 years gigging in London pubs and on the apres-ski circuit in the Swiss alps under his belt, Zac will complete a series of intimate live shows before the year closes out.
