August 30, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Today, indie electro-pop artist Bay Ledges shares his first new single, “Changing,” since signing to Nettwerk. The track is a glitch pop treat of summery beats layered over visionary Zach Hurd’s smooth almost hazy vocals. Hurd explains, “I wrote half of the song in Los Angeles and the other half after moving back to Maine earlier this year. Recording while we were staying with friends and renting short term apartments. Among other things, the song’s about saying goodbye to a time in your life and acknowledging your own growth.“

Zach Hurd started Bay Ledges in his bedroom after moving to Los Angeles from a small town in coastal Maine in 2015. It began as an attempt to make fun, creative sounds with no expectation. Chopped-up guitar lines, playful beats, and manipulated vocals created soulful, glitchy songs with a feeling of nostalgia. The project took off when Hurd’s 2016 single, “Safe,” jumped to the number three spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. He has toured all over the US and Canada, sharing the stage with such acts as Yoke Lore, Magic City Hippies, and The Palms.
In 2020 Hurd utilized time off the road to get back to the more personal process of making music – writing, producing, and mixing his 2020 EP, New Daze. After the release of New Daze, Hurd packed his bags and relocated back to Maine. He is currently working on Bay Ledges’ debut album. Stay tuned for more to come.
