The lockdown has had a severe impact on the lives of people all over the world. For most, it was their first experience with social isolation. In the early days of the lockdown, people were still hopeful that things would get better soon and they would be able to go back to their normal lives. However, as time went on and it became clear that this was not going to happen, many people began getting hopeless. The lack of social connection made it difficult for those affected to cope with the lockdown.
Keaper’s new single Day By Day was written during lockdown, and came from a place of confusion and frustration, speaking to the uncertainty of the future during the pandemic and the difficulty of being separated from someone you love. The lyrics reflect on how we all felt during that time: isolated, frightened, and insecure.
Drawing inspiration from artists like DIIV, The Smashing Pumpkins and The Sundays, Keaper crafts music that’s recognizable by its rich, layered production. Their sound is often described as guitar-driven and melodic, with a focus on creating an immersive atmosphere.
