The widespread hype surrounding Bronson, composed of Seattle duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight of ODESZA, and Australian producer Tom Stell of Golden Features, is already at an all-time high. With the release of their first two singles already seeing top stream counts, the supergroup edges one step closer to their collaborative debut today. Bronson now releases their next single, “Dawn,” featuring Brit underground producer Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED).
“When we started the writing process for ‘Dawn,’ it was with the intent to fill in the gap of what was missing on the record,” Bronson shares on how “DAWN” came together. “We came to Orlando [of TEED] with an initial idea for the track, and in turn, he listened to parts of the record, made sense of its themes both sonically and conceptually and started to write over what became what [the song] is now.”
Paired with sweepingly cinematic production, TEED’s celestial vocals evoke a renewed sense of hope and purpose, inspiring a near-spiritual experience upon first listen. If nothing else, the record is telling of the current electronic landscape shift and the creative leap the guys wanted to make with their darker project.
“Not only do the lyrics provide this renewed sense of hope, but his vocals compliment the tone and energy of the song perfectly,” Bronson continues. “‘Dawn’ is a song meant to take you on a journey and explore various concepts and emotions of the record. We couldn’t think of a more fitting song to end the album with.”
