Above & Beyond

‘Another Angel’ is the new track from Above & Beyond, which they debuted at Group Therapy Weekender 2019, their new bi-annual camping festival at The Gorge Amphitheatre outside of Seattle.

Another example of Above & Beyond’s recent attraction to tougher, tenebrous sounds this year (consider ‘Waltz’, ‘Distorted Truth’, ’There’s Only You’ and the tech-trance sounds of Genix on Anjunabeats), the track is out now.

 

Dropped on dancefloors from New York to Prague, accompanied by a visual that’s apparently unnervingly similar to Dr. Who’s most terrifying antagonist, the track samples the band’s own 2011 single ‘On My Way To Heaven’ from their album ‘Group Therapy’. 

 

The vocal work of Richard Bedford here sounds almost plaintive and cowed, surrounded on all sides by cascading bass. Things culminate in a drop that possibly manages to be quintessential Above & Beyond and something totally fresh at the same time.
