Zach Hood braces for the end of a relationship on “Weatherman”


It was evident that Zach Hood was about to become everyone’s favorite new artist after the release of “Flashbacks” in 2021. Not only does it have over 50 million streams on Spotify, but it was the result of Zach’s first in-person studio session – making its success all the more impressive. In the past few years, Zach has been cranking out more hits like “never knew a heart could break itself” and “how to change a tire,” proving that he is not thriving in the music world by accident. He knows what he wants, knows what he can offer, and delivers. It is not a surprise, then, that he has stirred up quite a storm with his new single. His teasers on social media have gone viral and have led to over 10K pre-saves and over 20K new followers. Based on today’s forecast, the time has finally come for Zach to drop “Weatherman,” turning this storm into a raging hurricane.

On “Weatherman,” Zach equates the end of a relationship with the formation of a devastating storm. Throughout this dark folk track, he pairs the stripped back sound with rich vocals that evoke the wrath of oncoming storm clouds. As he realizes that this relationship cannot be saved, he sings, “Sound the alarm / The weatherman is screaming / There’s a storm / It’s coming, I can feel it / The trees are barely moving and the birds are hardly singing / The leaves have left the branches / Now I know you’re really leaving.” Try as he might, there is no way to prevent the damage that is about to occur.

About the single, Zach explains,

“I was in a very happy relationship for two years that slowly turned into my biggest heartbreak and my muse for these past few years. Towards the middle of our relationship, I could tell that she was kind of fading from the girl I first met. I could tell that she wasn’t very happy with our relationship, and no matter what I said or did, it wouldn’t bring back that girl. It broke me. She was the only thing I ever really wanted in this world, and she slowly fell out of love. ‘Weatherman’ is about the last few months I was with her. It felt like a storm was coming and I couldn’t do anything about it.”

You can listen to “Weatherman” on platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, and Apple Music.
