ye. – Forever Side
‘Forever Side' is a tune relies on a few elements as scaffolding. The light and airy percussion of chimes throughout the song immediately instill the track with a sense of wonder. It is remiscient of tunes released off of Odesza's Foreign Family imprint. They evoke imagery of the great outdoors, hikings in the mountains, and exploring the unknown.
Then the subtle but heavy bass is arranged in a way to not overpower the lighter elements of the tune, while still adding an added punch of character. The pensive use of bass reminds me of Ratatat's earlier work, as it perfect ties things together while allowing the more intricate elements to shine.
