You may remember that in 2017 we spoke to this Singaporean musician. Gareth has an incredibly soulful voice and sings with such emotion. It is plain to see that he believes what he is singing about. These days, so many pop songs come across hollow and follow a format we have grown so used to, but Gareth seems to do things differently.
Last year he released the track 'Bit of Your Love'. We gave it a good run on our radio station and it seemed to get a good bit of interest in our Top 10 countdown which airs weeknights at 8pm. We were surprised to see that Gareth filmed the music video in Melbourne, taking to many different locations around the city. It was also beautifully shot.
Fast forward to 2018 and Gareth has released a new track 'My Heartbreak Song' and just this week he uploaded the MV to go with it. This time round he has put even more thought into the concept of the video, he's really outdone himself.
When you first hear the track on the radio (we added the song in late January) you can't help but start to tap your feet, the beat is infectious. The song is by far more energetic than that of what we usually hear from Gareth, at least a higher BPM.. if you know what I mean. It wasn't until we watched the MV this week that the song kind of took on a new meaning. It just goes to show how important a music video is, it can change your perception of the track completely.
In the music video, Gareth is seemingly the birthday boy, surrounded by his mates in some sort of men's bar. At one point he is encouraged to go to one of the back rooms to spend time with a young women but the two seem to hit it off and have real chemistry. Before too long the pair are dancing whilst assumingly listening to the track itself.
Well worth a look at, watch it from start to finish and let us know what you think of both the song and the MV. We wish Gareth success with this release and his work into 2018.
