‘Rise (ft. Joe Kosky)’ is the hypnotic new offering from former Godwolf member Price Park. A collaborative effort with Melbourne based Joe Kosky, the track is built upon a lullaby-like, dreamy soundscape. The electronic production sways in and out of warm synth sounds, restrained sample use and sumptuous vocals. It’s a smooth outing for the emerging artist.
“We were in Nagambie in country Victoria on a little writing retreat – because we’re cute like that – and we smashed out 5 or 6 tunes in a few days. Rise was easily the most fluid and effortless of the lot. I had a dank beat I was keen for Joe to work with, then he pretty quickly laid down the main riffs and some chords, I built the rest of the track while he went away and wrote and recorded the vocals, and the rest is history.” – Price Park
“This is easily one of the most effortless and inspired tracks we’ve worked on together. The vocals and lyrics were really a logical extension of the mood we’d created with the arrangement. It can feel cliché or ‘tacky’ sometimes to write songs based in defiance, but at this point in time in both of our lives and careers – and of course given the global political climate – it feels poignant – it feels important. I think it’ll resonate fairly well since we’re all living through this strange period of history together. On a personal level I think the song came from an intersection in my life, where one road would lead to perpetual destructive habits, and the other to some sense of redemption. Still not quite sure which one I’ve walked down to be honest.”
