[Premiere] ford. shares new single “Living, Breathing”

Foreign Family Collective affiliate ford., who today shares his first solo release of 2020 and a new original single “Living, Breathing.” The release of the song comes on the heels of a Grammy nomination for “Best Remixed Recording” for his rework of “SWIM” by Mild Minds and tours supporting Maribou State, Madeon, Com Truise, and Jai Wolf. Born in Paris and raised in Frankfurt, Switzerland, and Singapore, ford. now resides in Utah and draws inspiration from the state’s expansive landscapes to create mindful and stirring electronic compositions.

“This track came together last year when I was on the road with Maribou State,” ford. shares of the song. “Fortunately, I got a couple off-days near the end of the run. 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.”
