Price Park - Rise (feat. Joe Kosky)
Tom Armstrong is rapidly making himself known to the world as Price Park, and he returns today with a dreamy, mood-driven single entitled “Rise” featuring fellow Australian talent Joe Kosky, a singer who he has collaborated with already in the past. The two make a strong tag-team, that's for sure. Getting a major /Nick Murphy influence on the sound hear, mellow, melancholy and a minor hip-hop bounce to it that makes it glide along very easily. Check out a quotes from Price Park and Joe Koslky on the song below and stream “Rise” below that!
“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 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 the track while he went away and wrote and recorded the vocals, and the rest is history.” – Price Park
“This is easily one the most effortless and inspired tracks we’ve worked on together. The vocals and lyrics were really a logical extension the mood we’d created with the arrangement. It can feel cliché or ‘tacky’ sometimes to write based in defiance, but at this point in time in both our lives and careers –and 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 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 redemption. Still not quite sure which one I’ve walked down to be honest.” –Joe Kosky
