Audien makes his triumphant return to his blissful progressive house roots with his new single, “Wish it Was You.” After leaning into the pop realm with his last couple of singles, “Wish it Was You” is a complete distillation of Audien’s sound, with a beautiful synth melody, a passionate female vocal, and that trademark Audien chord progression.
The song opens with some melodic guitar plucks layered over the beat and synth notes in the background. As the synths lay down the melody of the song, the vocal comes in and packs the emotional heft of the song. After that, there’s a vocal bridge, where the original melody of the song comes into play. The synths rise up in the mix until the melody becomes the focal point of the drop. Another blissful verse plays out before an even bigger drop. Here’s what Audien had to say about “Wish It Was You.”
“‘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
