Zefereli are a band that have come somewhat out of nowhere this year, a unique pop powerhouse formed of former Cairos frontman Alistar Richardson and fellow Brissy songwriter Clea, and ‘We’re Gonna Get There Someday’ might just be the peak of their output so far, kicking their debut full-length off in brilliant fashion.
The thing is awash in nostalgia, in many ways echoing the best guitar pop sounds of the ’90s and ’00s – especially in its overlapping vocal hooks and reverb-laden bed of guitar and synth – and serving as a perfect flag-bearer for the pair’s thoughtful pop.
We’re taken back a few decades with the video, too; shot entirely on Super 8 film format while on tour, it’s as dreamlike as its soundtrack, the two combining for the perfect miniature road-trip.
Sadly, at just two-and-a-half minutes, the trip is over far too soon, but you’ll be able to catch this one live as Zefereli wrap up their tour with Sydney indie faves Letters To Lions this coming weekend, stopping off in Rye on Friday December 22, before closing the tour out in Melbourne the following night.
