Above & Beyond, one of the most powerful songwriting & production trios in electronic music today, return with their new single, “Blue Sky Action”.
Fresh from mesmerising performances at this summer’s Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Glastonbury festival, the London based collective of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki reunite with vocalist Alex Vargas for a beautifully crafted big room anthem. Full of typically emotive lyrics and melodic hooks, “Blue Sky Action” reflects a taste of their forthcoming new album (title TBA), due in early 2015.
“’Blue Sky Action’ is part inspired by the first half hour of the film ‘Wall-E,’ which for me was one of the most moving, romantic films of its generation,” says Tony McGuinness. “’Wall-E’ is the last man standing on an earth rendered uninhabitable by pollution and fierce sunlight. He owns every material thing imaginable, but something is missing; he’s lonely. When the clouds part unexpectedly his perspective changes, and he decides to risk everything for adventure and love. And so begins his blue sky getaway.”
“Blue Sky Action” is set to be one of this summer’s most anthemic releases, from their debut album We Are All We Need [due out in January].
