44 Ardent is an anonymous Australian producer who has a sound that can be likened to a mix between Caribou, Tourist and Odesza. 44 Ardent has been very busy this year after setting himself a goal to release a new single every month. As we roll into mid-August it is now time for his next offering which is an invigorating indie-dance track called “don’t give up on me”, which he says has come from the freedom ofexperimenting with different sounds and ideas and is aimed at trying to capture the feeling ofbeing overwhelmed and needing to take a step back.
“This year has beena bit of an exploratory period for 44 Ardent. When I made my ‘intothedeep’ album in 2022, it was a structured body of work and had a fairly clear style. Doing a big run of singles this year has given me the chance to explore, and I amen joying the process of experimenting with different sounds. I am not sure where the things will land at the end, but I am having a lot of fun creating, which to me is the most important part.
