Your Voice On The Radio (feat. Laura Gibson) (Official Music Video)

From the album 'Emotional Freedom Technique' (2017),  

Directed by: Christopher Harrell

This concept came from Dave’s love of vintage synths and my love of colorful music driven pieces. Having Dave’s collection of beautiful instruments to draw from was the perfect palette for creating this deconstructed vision of the song. In the end, we wanted to create something that felt nostalgic, colorful, and a just little weird.


Straddling the line between pop and despair, Emotional Freedom Technique is a letter to the broken heart that won’t mend but still beats. It is a portrait of what happens when someone is flung across the world on tour - grateful to be there, grateful for the success and the adventures, but ultimately lonely. Because the songs were so deeply personal, Depper decided to record them entirely by himself, playing every instrument.

When Depper wrote these songs, they only became fully realized after he had been immersed in the yo-yo life of coming and going. Of returning home after being on the road for months at a time to find that friends had stopped calling him, since they assumed he was gone. Of the cycle of relationships that never took off, because he kept taking off first.

For a record centered around the self-doubt and discovery in the depths of isolation, Emotional Freedom Technique is the light at the sharp corner of a shadow. It is disco music for after 3 AM, for the walk home to an empty house. Notably, while the record is cohesive in theme and sound, its identity is multi-faceted.

The most straightforward pop song, “Your Voice on the Radio”, features friend and former bandmate Laura Gibson adding vocals about unrealized and unsatisfied love over bubbling bass and sparkling, multiplying shakers and synths that build to a deceptively joyous chorus. Songs like “Do You Want Love” and “Communication” lean forward on cutting deep, propulsive grooves, while “EZ-101” casts ambient glitter while Depper sings, not sadly and not happily, but starkly:

Last night I gave up my resolution to be
something more than the sum of what you expected me to be

Grappling with loneliness, the longing for human connection and the fear thereof, Depper strings ornate synth melodies together into simple hooks that speak to the most relatable reasons we listen to pop music - to remember we aren’t alone, and to still have a good time with it.

Everyone might know Dave Depper, but this is the long-awaited record of someone who knows himself.
