“Changes”, the single produced by Latvian indie-soul band Kris & Oz and deep house project Phonetica, last Friday dropped on the legendary King Street Sounds in New York.
Kris & Oz has been around for seven years. The band twice (in 2018 and 2019) participated in the national arm of the Eurovision song contest – Supernova, and last August released the song “Changes”, which was written by three original members of the team: Kristina Morins, Alexander Solovyov and Arthur Osipov.
“„Changes” is about dancing, enjoying life, waiting for a change for the better,” the musicians say. “The song is also about good changes in the band: we’ve been joined by bassist Mark recently.”
“After the song was out, Alexander Solovyov of Kris & Oz asked us to remix it,” Max Lomov of Phonetica. – As a result we got two good club versions. We thought these could be good for King Street Sounds, then sent our demos over to them and signed the release deal!”
