North London singer, songwriter and rapper Zakhar is back with his latest single, “Better Things”, which arrives with a new set of visuals directed by Chris Chance.
Produced by Phrxlla, with additional production from Deps Music, it’s another prime example of the 18-year-old’s finely tuned balancing act that pairs delicate songwriting with a dark and crisp instrumental that’s pure LDN. For the video, Chris Chance continues that interplay of the rough and the smooth, artfully arranging shots of Zakhar and a small group of supporting players, and then setting them against the dark grey skies of London’s smoky cityscapes and beaten-up concrete settings.
“‘Better Things’ is a mixture of my romance, life experiences and feelings living in inner-city London,” says Zakhar, and this is perfectly encapsulated in the track’s visuals. Peep the music video above and be sure to add “Better Things” to your playlists.
