“HBD!” by Zachary Booth

“HBD!” by Zachary Booth is a dreamy pop track full of brilliantly written melodies and atmospheric production tricks. Each moment just oozes with delightful, light-hearted goodness, (despite its cheeky yet melancholy topic), and ends up feeling rather summery. If you’re not infatuated with Zachary’s warm tone and effortless delivery by the end, something’s wrong. This song is truly a perfect addition to the fabric of modern pop music.

“Look at all the things that I’ve achieved without you / I wish that we had done it as a team / I doubt you’ll feel the same,” Zachary starts the song off with a delicate melody and a series of sharp piano hits. Sunny background vocals occasionally interject, adding an element of charm. The moment the chorus sets in, a slew of synths and guitars envelop the sound—and not only does the harmonic texture thicken, but the percussion invites a groovy, rhythmic quality into the mix. The lyrics paint a picture of a severed relationship and the irony that comes along with feeling close to someone at one time, then distant at another. As these vibrantly full harmonies coat the lead vocal, the atmosphere blossoms into something dynamic, climactic, and wonderfully satisfying.

Be sure to give Zachary Booth a listen and a follow on your choice of streaming service or social media platform. “HBD!” might just be your new favorite pop track. Zachary’s artistry shines through every single measure of this memorable song, leaving you hoping there’s more where that came from.
