Above & Beyond – ‘Tightrope‘ – A rousing highlight from the trio’s headline shows at Ultra Miami and Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas this year, ‘Tightrope‘ is a return to the heartfelt songwriting that has won Jono, Tony and Paavo legions of fans around the world.
2017 has already been a prolific year for the band, with the release of uplifting singalong ‘Alright Now‘ (alongside longtime collaborator Justine Suissa), walloping tech-trancer ‘1001,’ the brooding ‘Balearic Balls‘ and piano-led ambient moment ‘Surge,’ lifted from the Inspired By The Ghost In The Shell soundtrack.
With heartfelt lyrics penned by Tony McGuinness and plaintive vocalist Marty Longstaff (singer-songwriter from UK band The Lake Poets), ‘Tightrope‘ is a soaring yet bitter entreaty for hope and direction in trying times that tickles both heartstrings and hips. Debuted during a recent tour of India, the track proved to be an instant hit with fans, bootleg videos feverishly flooding the internet almost immediately.
With further summer outings including Creamfields UK, an Ibiza residency at Cream Amnesia and a headlining Electric Zoo performance, ‘Tightrope‘ is a resounding reminder that Above & Beyond remain at the very top of the game.
