Earlier this summer, Audien released his dreamy “Summer Mix 2021”. The mix hinted at the return to his progressive house roots. His latest track, with the collaboration of Cate Downey, confirms that return.
“Wish It Was You” begins with a euphoric synth melody that leads into Cate Downey’s dreamy vocals. The lyrics, focusing on the sadness of trying to find the one you love, carry you into the gentle build of that classic progressive drop. While the drop is still powerful, it doesn’t punch you in the stomach like the “everybody jump” days of the early 2010s. A refreshing twist indeed!
“” Wish It Was You” is a really special song to me. Stylistically, it's me embracing my sound and standing behind it. This music has always been in my DNA. Energetic, emotional progressive house. This is what I'm all about these days and I would consider this song the beginning of a rebirth.” – Audien
Audien – “Wish It Was You (ft. Cate Downey)” is available today via Armada Music!
