“I was dealing with the loss of my father while making the song. The main pitched-up vocal melody is a recording of me singing in my childhood bedroom, just a few feet from where my father passed away. I think you’ll hear the pain in the melody. Jives and I had been talking online and realized we had a lot of similar production techniques. He really helped bring the song together, and our shared sounds are reflected by the fact that we are ‘kindred spirits’ even though we have yet to meet.”HOUNDTRACK
A heartwarming blend of downtempo electronica & future beats that will touch your soul.
Jives & HOUNDTRACK share a love for peculiar production techniques and “kindred spirits” is the climax of their chemistry. Made while dealing with the loss of a father, the song carries pain & melancholy but also hopefulness in its pitched vocals, rich drum section, and synths.
HOUNDTRACK’s signature melodic bass approach shines through here, as well, having won the hearts of millions of listeners with his highly-acclaimed previous releases “Cul de Sac” & “Afterglow”.
“I have been a big fan of HOUNDTRACK for a while now making the production of this track a dream. We really bonded over our similar approach to music and cranked this track out despite living in different states.” shares jives.
