Two years after giving us some bangers, the young DIY producer is finally back.
The first we've heard from Gaff since 2021's 'Friday on a Tuesday', and a string of singles across 2019 and 2020, Gaff's sound retains its lofi homemade quality but there's still that magical, insanely catchy pace.
Armed with beat switches, bedroom pop goodness, irredescent synths, indie-rock guitar riffs and hip-hop elements; 'Right Here Waiting' is a great comeback tune.
As usual, he's playful and doesn't hold much back in his relaxed, conversational lyrical style. The Roscommon native's style of music lives in the cracks between indie, pop, trap, alternative and hip-hop, but genres don't label him.
"Now I'm drinking in the day / Stuck inside man, can't get away...Fuck the news, I'm getting sick of it," he declares. Gaff's got vocal tones and guitar lines in common with Dominic Fike, Dreamer Boy, Thomas Headon and Oscar Welsh, but with a unique flavour of his own.
The visuals come with 360 degree drone footage in a sunny, faraway land. "I won't sell my soul, not for no fame," he declares. Seems like that healthy DIY ethic isn't going away anytime soon. GIVE US AN EP for God's sake, man.
