“Back To Me Again“ is the debut single on Aztec Records from Berlin-based vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tommy Countach.
The song is based on a 10 year old guitar recording on his phone. Back then he was on the verge of an aspiring music career, but like ever so often, life got in the way. He lost track of himself, until recently rediscovering this old memo and remembering what used to be so heartfelt and inherent. The new single “Back To Me Again“ deals with just that and finally brings an almost forgotten song idea to light.
Tommy Countach produces all his music in his home studio using classic and modern analog synths; the pads are from a classic Roland JX8P, the bass is a modern Prophet Rev 2. The lead sound is layered between an Oberheim OBX8, a recreation of the iconic OBX from the early 80s and an original Roland D50. This results in a sound that blends between 80s synthpop nostalgia mixed with modern synthwave, mostly inspired by iconic 80s groups like The Outfield, Journey and Roxette.
The single “Back To Me Again“ is the first single of the upcoming album that is scheduled for the end of 2023.
