If you don't see the powerful trio, Above & Beyond as pure British Trance gods than you might be missing out on what it is to actually experience and hear good music. There are truly amazing trance producers out there, but A&B just generates a special connection to their audience. Their new video for "Alchemy" featuring Zoë Johnston shows just that.
The video tells an emotional tale of a relationship that diminishes when a woman finds her lover with someone else. The track stands right to Jono Grant, Paavo Siljamäki, and Tony McGuinness' true style. It's deeply filled with melodic chords behind the pleasant vocals of Zoë Johnston can capture your soul right from the beginning.
McGuinness told Rolling Stone that the track is "an honest, raw expression of betrayal." I think that's something we can all relate to. Watch the video below and see for yourself.
