Dream the day away with Love Me Now, the latest offering from Ziggy Alberts

Ziggy Alberts brings his beloved brand of coastal folk to latest track Love Me Now. As a singer, songwriter, surfer and environmental enthusiast, this connoisseur of good vibes will soon be stealing your heart, if he hasn’t already.

Chiselling out a sound of his own, Ziggy exists somewhere between the touchstones of Bon Iver, Angus and Julia Stone, The Beautiful Girls and Ben Howard.

Sophisticated and rich, Love Me Now by Ziggy Alberts is coastal melody strengthened by thumping drums, sugary-sweet vocals and warm guitar riffs.

Love Me Now traces the internal back and forth experienced within a tumultuous relationship. At the heart of the track is the notion of acceptance; accepting the space between two people, where they are at and where they are going.

Equipped with a guitar and tender vocal style, the song ebb and flows like the sea. Raw, real and above all – passionate.

The influences of his ocean-side upbringing and romantic experiences are not only felt in the folky energy of the track, but also the lyricism: “Do you ever feel like you’re on a train moving too fast to stop – but someone you love is in the carriage and you can’t get off?”

After picking up a guitar for the first time in 2011, Ziggy developed his musical prowess with the help of his storytelling skills. A growing appreciation soon followed as he graced the stages of Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass and PIKNIK.

Along with his ever-increasing grassroots following from urban and regional Australia, Ziggy Alberts has also garnered an impressive catalogue over the years. If you’re into the latest, there’s plenty more to listen back on.

With the addition of Love Me Now to Ziggy Alberts’s burgeoning repertoire, the swooning song cements his place as one to watch. If you’re in need of a track to lose yourself in while dreaming the day away, this one is for you.

 

Love Me Now is out now.
