Forces became a band in 2017 after the duo closed the book on a whirlwind decade of recording and touring with their former band, The Golden Dogs. That trip took them all over the world to support great artists such as Sloan, Feist, Bloc Party, Libertines, Kaiser Chiefs, Thurston Moore, and more. “Step In A Sway” is the duo’s second single and a foray into layering tracks with metronomic, percussive loops, as opposed to the traditional power-pop approach of recording they were used to.
The name ‘Forces’ implies a literal “joining of forces” between Dave and I, each contributing our power into doing the thing we love to do most: making music, together. But, it’s also rooted in our love of joining forces with our musical community, and our passion for creating experiences for our friends to play and perform together. “‘Step in a Sway’—our second single, but the first we recorded—felt to us like a true departure both in style and attitude. It was our foray into layering tracks with metronomic, percussive loops, as opposed to the traditional power-pop approach of recording we were used to, a bed-track with drums, bass & guitar,” Forces shares.
