Faces On TV - 'Time After Time'

Posted on 12 Feb 2020

While Jasper Maekelberg keeps us waiting for the follow up of his acclaimed Faces on TV debut, he keeps us sending exciting new music. And this letter. Time after Time is the new Faces on TV single.

"Time after Time is a song I wrote about the aftermath of a relationship and with the disconcerting yet somehow consoling fact that it’s probably impossible to find the perfect match, no matter how hard you try.

This song started out as a jam, just me and a drum computer, looping things until I had a nice groove going on. I really wanted to make something to listen to while driving towards the sunset in Key West in a convertible. (never been there and I still don’t own a convertible, but hey, one must keep on dreaming). I tried many different things after that, from real drums to strings and all that kind of stuff, but every time I played something new, it lost some of its directness and honesty. So I ended up with the demo version again. I called Pomrad to come over and play some nice chords on it and that was that. I even kept my demo guitar solo (yes this song contains a guitar solo)."
