"Tightrope" by @aboveandbeyond ft Martin Longstaff - Live from 808 Festival 2017
Tightrope is the first single released 5 months ago from the forthcoming 6th studio album of Above & Beyond - Common Ground, scheduled to be released on 26th January 2018. Two other single from the album released so far: My Own Hymn and Northern Soul.
For years now, Above & Beyond have partnered with the same vocalists their fans are so familiar with. Justine Suissa from Oceanlab, Zoe Johnston, and Richard Bedford are all mainstays for Above & Beyond which is why it is a bit surprising, yet refreshing, that A&B tagged a relatively unknown vocalist for their brand new single.
After the vocals were laid out, Above & Beyond began building the music around it. The lyrics intend to be melancholy, almost sad even, giving A&B the direction to create the dark, but beautiful song. To quote Tony, “It feels really big and dark and substantial and a real contrast to the fragile breakdown music that it spans. It’s like a delicate musical cord hung between granite cliffs.” Beautifully said indeed.
