A little bit of background on FØRD: so his last single, “The Pier” hit #1 in triple j‘s Unearthed dance and electronic chart and also secured a spot in New Music Friday over on Spotify, and if you know anything about Spotify, those official playlists are all the buzz these days.
Anyways, FØRD‘s new single will send all the tingles down your spine. A collaboration with vocalist Rya Park, “Oblivion” has this easy swing to it that gives the song a super laid-back feel. Before long, Rya’s vocals drift in like a lost sojourner, and then she quickly transitions into a catchy chant that slowly builds up to the song’s wobblyyyy chorus drop. Now, I’m starting to get kind of sick of vocal chop-oriented choruses and drops, but FØRD only gives a slight hint to the sound of vocal chops before giving Rya‘s voice the attention it deserves.
