Zach James Douglas uses his music to dispel natural feelings of shame, anxiety and depression – and instead, compartmentalise and methodically process these emotions in a way that humans are generally not capable.
Indie/alternative producer and songwriter, Zach James Douglas lives in Tallaght, but was "brought up by a pint of Guinness and a packet of crisps in any number of city centre dive bars".
Formerly a member of Little One, Douglas is just now stepping out on his own with the release of his new single 'Something / Anything'. "'Something/Anything' deals with the bitterness and the anger that began to engulf mine and my Ex’s relationship, as she struggled to come to terms with her own personal demons and issues at home. It documents how my role in her life began to change from one of positivity, comfort and reliability, to the new position of the perpetual scapegoat."
Fascinated by the intersection of nature and technology, Douglas combines conventional instrumentation with synthetic soundscapes. His music contains nods to his heroes – Sylvan Esso, Grimes, and Maribou State to name a few – and this latest foray into cinematic, moody production features guest vocalist Kintsuku.
2021 is looking to be an exciting year for Zach James Douglas. Listen to the song below.
