There's nothing I love more than a good balance between acoustic and electronic instruments. It always makes for a super satisfying, dynamic sound, and Vacnouver-based GOODWOOD ATOMS
prove that with their new track, "Tech Know," premiering here today. Acoustic guitars strum and drums clash while airy keys pluck away and create an ethereal atmosphere. Comprised of Francis Hooper (vocals/synth/acoustic guitar), Joey Pooley (vocals/bass/synth), Dawson Verboven (electric guitar), and Justin Banmann (drums/keys), the group works together to take you into their melancholic world. It'll make your heart drop in your stomach.
"'Tech Know' meditates on what it means to be human in an increasingly technological world," the band says on the message behind the song. "It's a theme we've always been drawn to. This was actually one of the very first GOODWOOD ATOMS songs which we sort of 'rediscovered' and reworked when demoing our new album. The way the song progresses, you can almost hear our evolution as a band over the last few years from a more driving, acoustic guitar-heavy approach to a more ethereal sound rooted in electronic instrumentation."
