Taken from Zebra and Snake’s debut album, Healing Music, released in May, “Empty Love Song” gets the single treatment on August 20. That’s quite a lengthy delay — nearly a year since my first spin — but Tapio and Matti’s new video for “Empty Love Song” has amazingly arrived right on time, in light of today’s earlier Friday Flashback.
What I said last September still holds true today. Zebra and Snake’s tale of lost love, awash in OMD-esque synths, would have been an obvious pick for a John Hughes soundtrack. It’s a match made only in my dreams, of course, especially since the music video takes an artier approach to the material over scenes reminiscent of the late teen auteur.
