Woodes: Change My Mind

I'm at a loss for words! Listening to Woodes's latest single, I just catapulted from everyday fan to diehard. "Change My Mind" gives the same sumptuous feels that overwhelmed me the first time driving the PCH in Malibu, windows down, blanketed with infectious singalong melodies and chord progressions that burrow deep. More often than not, a song's overall appeal is usually greater than the sum of its parts, but in the case of Woodes's music, it sounds like each puzzle piece can stand alone giving their collective impact an almost unfair advantage. If you're lucky enough to attend her Splendour in the Grass debut this month, I'm envious. Listening to this song there...what a breathtaking landscape to witness this live.

New Zealand is one of my favourite places to go to escape and the first day I was there, this song came out. Mountains and epic landscapes outside the window. The production started with a sample of a beach and then the rolling live beat, played by my drummer Tim Cox. I heard harps and little pitter pats in the silences. I love that the track was made start to finish in New Zealand.
