ford. is on his way to becoming a household name in the indie electronic scene. Since signing on to ODESZA‘s Foreign Family Collective imprint, he’s been steadily releasing originals and remixes, including his 2018 debut LP (The) Evening. Ahead of his sophomore album, due out this summer, ford. shares some of his finest work to date.
“Living, Breathing” is an instrumental cut, but provides more than enough depth to fill out the track. It’s powered by a rich chord progression highlighted with airy plucks and atmospheric elements. ford. recalls how the track came to life while on tour:
“I remember messing with a synth and laying down a bunch of random messy ideas, stretching sounds out, and trying a bunch of sample processing things I had never done before. After consistently being on the move, it felt so good to be able to wind down for a minute, take a step back from the shows, and just feel like I could sonically explore. That doodling eventually turned into what is ‘Living, Breathing’ today.”
