Los Angeles musician Jordan Sudak (aka Koda) has shared an eerie new single called "White Dove."
The entrancing new cut arrived Wednesday with an accompanying video. It's the second preview of the artist's upcoming debut album I Hope This Makes Us Better.
"'White Dove' was my first song that flowed directly from anger," Sudak says of the new song. "It was this confluence of my angst toward the recent election—the bitter spitefulness from the bully right who I had so much experience with growing up in South Carolina—and this restrictive regime I was trapped under in my personal life. Before I titled and finished the song it was a barebones beat with me sort of freestyling over it—literally titled 'diss track' on my desktop. It's the most cathartic song and direct song for me, about how some people can't help but take, take, take from you."
Sudak's musical history runs deep. He's the grandson of a famous Haitian singer. And after spending the first half of his life as an army brat, living all over the world, his parents transitioned from a radical form of Protestantism (banning contemporary art and burning Harry Potter books) to becoming atheists and forming an experimental rock band, with Jordan contributing vocals.
"White Dove" definitely could soundtrack an episode of the upcoming season of HBO's True Detective. Take a listen below.
