The Occupants - Streets

The Occupants - Streets
Once again the Occupants teamed up with producer Forrester Savell and Melbourne based musician Leigh Davies, and headed back to the infamous “Music Farm” studios in the hills of Byron Bay. Continuing their exploration of fusing organic and electronic sounds, the new track has revealed yet another glimpse of this ongoing adventure.

“The consensus within the camp was that the music reminded everyone of that time in their own lives when, as kids, we began to explore our neighbourhoods on bikes or skateboards or things like that. So we decided to pursue that idea. In essence, this track is all about the feeling you get when you’re just cruising the streets”.

“I guess in general we feel much more at home with darker, more melancholic material. “Streets” sounds quite light and happy and at times it felt like we were operating on the fringes of our comfort zone. Despite this we sensed there was something really endearing about what we were hearing so we continued to experiment and persist with it. Overall it turned out to be extremely challenging to design even though it sounds pretty simple and straightforward compared to other music we’ve created”.

About this track...

“Yeah it’s different. We hope it’s different. We want it to be different. But what’s still the most important consideration is that it makes people feel good.”
