Gan Ganor is an Israeli musician and producer. He began his musical journey at 21 when he was accepted into Berklee College Of Music and studied with legendary teachers such as Tomo Fujita and Dennis Montgomery III. Upon returning to Israel, he taught himself to self-produce, blending elements of electronic music, rock music, and full-bodied sounds synthesizers and drum machines with overdriven guitars and drums.
He has played guitar in various Israeli bands before ultimately focusing on his own material, which can now be heard on his latest single ”Little Breaths”. The song is inspired by the New-Wave sound of the 1980s and is written as a love song for his firstborn son.
GAN’s soft rock track “Little Breaths” is an 80’s inspired dream pop hit that contains a host of synth indie rock elements. The song is written as a heartfelt love song for the artist’s firstborn son, and features passionate male vocals. Starting with its pleading lead melody, the lush soundscape of “Little Breaths” envelops listeners with its layered production. As it moves through a touching chorus, GAN utilizes its adept use of ambient synths to build up tension and emotion.
The infectious rhythms and foot-tapping beats transport one to wishful daydreams as one can’t help but bop their head along with the track. Splashes of various instrumentals such as strings and drums provide essential texture, stopping short from overstaying its welcome on the track, instead complementing existing musical motifs beautifully.
The bittersweet end result is a romantically lucid dream pop reflection made even more impressive by GAN’s intense vocal performances and excellent production technique. All together it amounts to a thoughtful love story that transcends any specific era or genre, creating something both timelessly classic and yet exclusively unique in nature.
