Bubblegum is the first single from Austin Ward’s debut project ​Pheromone. The seven track EP takes listeners through a tale of first love and the lessons of heartbreak on the other side. Ward’s sound is an amalgamation of styles and influences that span across time - he invites listeners to journey with him as he almost theatrically confronts a three-part cast of characters: love, sex, and power. With lush instrumentation and poetic, but pointed, lyricism, Ward has developed a sound that’s in line with the best of Grizzly Bear and Beach House. ​Pheromone is the music that Ward has always wanted to create. These are the songs that have been marinating in his bedroom, the songs that have chronicled the love and loss in his life, the songs that give you everything he has.

Raised between the sun-kissed jungle gym of Los Angeles and the backwood charm of Meridian, MS, Ward draws upon his eclectic upbringing to inform his sound. He’s spent years behind the scenes, developing the sound of other artists, but he’s finally emerged with the music he’s always wanted you to hear. ​The writing is minimalist, but pointed, telling an emotive story with choice words. He sings of heartbreak and the tug-of-war nature of love, driven by intricate layered guitar parts, velvety mid-range and falsetto vocal performances, and anthemic timbre.
