John Dahlback Premieres New Single 'Raven' On Avicii's Radio Show
John Dahlbäck debuted the first single from his upcoming album on fellow Swedish producer Avicii's Levels podcast last week. Released through Armada Music, "Raven" is a rousing festival anthem that will likely get listeners moving on the dance floor. The single was released yesterday in anticipation of his next studio album.
"Raven" opens with a haunting piano piece, conjuring up gothic Poe-inspired images of black birds and cemeteries. The pace picks up as propulsive synths join the mix before the track dives head first into an explosive drop, as fat Future-house basslines pump away at the steadfast house beat.
The bassline throughout the drops become the most memorable portion of the track, bumping a catchy low-end melody and solidifying the dance floor grooves.
