    Iteration
    Out: June 16, 2017
    Ghostly International


    "Repetition is a form of change," reads one of Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies. Seth Haley knows the concept well, and his style of technicolour synth-wave takes the mantra as a challenge -- how much emotion can one man convey through his machines? Six years ago, Galactic Meltintroduced space traveller Com Truise and his journey through far-flung galaxies, before mini-epics Wave 1 and Silicon Tare expanded the story in further cosmic detail. And now Iterationconcludes this sprawling saga. True to its name, the album is built on Com Truise hallmarks: neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves, bleary nostalgia. But Iteration is also the most elegant and streamlined that Haley's music has ever sounded.

    At the album's heart is an elaborate narrative, one full of longing, hope, anxiety, and triumph. Iteration illustrates the last moments Com Truise spends on the perilous planet Wave 1, before he and his alien love escape its clutches to live in peace. Album opener ."..Of Your Fake Dimension" launches the interstellar drama with its anthemic swells and widescreen sound design, before lovesick songs like "Dryswch" and "Propagation" outline scenes wrought with cybernetic pathos. In "Isostasy," the synaesthetic quality of Haley's compositions is presented in ultra-high-definition. Later, the frantic rhythms of "Syrthio" conjure images of panicked flight as Haley's gorgeous synth melodies gild the action in quiet heartbreak. Then comes the resounding "When Will You Find The Limit...," when Iteration's pain and sadness finds liberation in the vast unknown. The closing title track ends it all in a gush of majestic revelry.

    So goes the winding story that Iteration tells, and yet there's more behind its telling. "I try hard not to write from my personal life, but it's inevitably going to seep into the music," Haley explains. "It's basically like I'm scoring this film in my head, but that film I'm scoring is also somehow my life." There are glimpses of the difficult time the East Coast native spent adjusting to a new life in Los Angeles, fighting homesickness and burnout while also touring the world. It was a time full of uncertainty, transition, and self-realization. After a year and a half of living in California, Haley finally recaptured his creativity by finding new excitement in his work. "I put more air, more breathing room in the music -- that was the big change," he says. And once that clicked, the album quickly materialized.

    Such a clear refinement of the Com Truise sound took time to develop, but Iteration is well worth the patience and perseverance it cost. Some of Haley's smartest, catchiest work is here, from the weightless pop heights of "Memory" to "Ternary"'s lush synth-funk. A song like "Vacuume" somehow manages to balance massive bass swells and punishing drums with stuttering angelic gasps, and "Usurper" gracefully pairs subtle poignant melodies with uplifting dance beats. "For me, it feels like change," Haley says of his second album, and yes, this is Com Truise like never before. By embracing the music's inherent nature and peerless qualities, Iteration finds new avenues of expression in its vivid, familiar surroundings.

    Simply put, ford. is personal. His music strikes you deeply and effectively. Put on any track from his critically acclaimed November 2018 debut album (The) Evening and find yourself instantly soothed, inspired, or even hypnotized. ford.’s music is an outlet to express himself and it’s a way to connect with others. Already amassing millions of streams and hundreds of thousands of monthly listeners over the course of two short years, ford. is a breakout talent apart of ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective.

     

    ford. makes a unique blend of indie influenced electronic music with plenty of lo-fi hip hop flourishes. The atmospheric and introspective music made by the burgeoning young talent ford., real name Luc Bradford, expresses an emotional depth that stretches well past this young man’s age. Wouldn’t say ford. is an old soul, but certainly a well-traveled one.

    Born in France, raised in Germany, Switzerland and even as far as Singapore, ford. now digs himself into the United States for a year committing fully to his music and growth as an artist. ford.’s upbringing and travels around the world have been instrumental in shaping his musical perspective. Living and thriving amongst different cultures enabled Luc to connect and engage with new people and fresh ideas. This translates so smoothly into his songs that even the most passive of listeners can hear and feel an emotive connection resonating throughout his sound.

    Where other artists may be careless, ford. stays as raw and transparent as he can be. He aims for a strong connection between his listeners on a deeper, more personal level. His initial forays into music came from a place of youthful yet inspiring heartache, but now ford. feels he’s got a clean slate to start a new phase in his musical career. ford. won’t be abandoning his nostalgia-infused style on upcoming tunes - but get excited for bright, upbeat, positive melodies that inspire and connect.

    Fundamentally, ford. has a power to his sound. Guided by great moments and adventures from his own meaningful travels around the world, ford. puts all of himself into his sound in an effort to vividly invoke and inspire those same great, personal moments in his audience. His music is open, inviting, and it lacks the pretension of so many artists that strive too hard to be profound in their compositions. ford.’s music has a strength that moves you, transporting you back to a nostalgic moment of taking in a beautiful summer sunset with friends. Accessible, relatable with a little bit of something for everyone, the ford. sound and style is simple, but chock full of meaning. If you’re still on the fence, just put a ford. track on and you can almost feel the warm summer wind blowing pleasantly through your hair.

    This year, you can expect an immersive ford. show lush with fresh, live visuals to connect friends and family. There’s no better way to bring people together than a top notch, but simply executed ford. set.
