For once something different from A&F, really liking the darker groove. It's also sounding rather clean, I was so tired of the incredible amount of white noise in any A&F track these last few years

I do not know if this is the cover of this single and if it is about Sunrise, which will be released in June. On compilation but is that about it? That is the question. In my opinion, I could use some energetic remix from S&T for example.

Maybe it's first single from new album?
Not exactly. Somebody Loves You assumed it was an album preview. The spell was broken as it turned out that this is just an ordinary long-awaited single. The cover is a bit food for thought, but I don't think it's a compilation or an album. The more that Aly & Fila writes that this is a single from the upcoming album. This was not the case before.

Really likin' this one. Something different, darker and slower from A&F. Despite the vocals do no fit 100% well, they're massive!

It is missing something. Just not feeling this. And yeah, the vocals could be better.

In my wildest dreams - or nightmares - involving Aly & Fila, I couldn't imagine a track like this. Just feels strange hearing this.

In any case, this is just average, but at least pleasant to listen to. The vocals aren't 100% fitting (which might not be Jes' fault), and it does miss a couple of riffs, melodies, anything, that would make it more memorable. The style is to be encouraged, but still needs more musical ideas.

Vocals not for me, but agree with the Sebamon that it this style is way better than some of the uplifting

However I just reminded myself of this amazing modern one from them and Ferry. It's so good. Imagine if this was the kind of thing they were trying to produce. Just clean, lovely tempo, atmospheric pads, warm bassline, the lot.

What's your rating? For me 7.9/10 ha
6.5 . too basic musical ideas to me. its just a somehwhat modernpleasant production, the musical effort is pretty low.

Would even lower it to 6/10. Also I'd say modern pleasant production sounds too warm for me. Trance shouldnt sounnd like house or rnb haha. I mean sonically. It should be somewhat raw.

Seems like a Gabriel and Dresden mock up.

I have to praise that it's not their usual FSOE template sound, but I'm struggling to like it. The dark groove is ok but like other opinions it lacks ideas, relying on the shady vocals to carry it. I tried a few listens but not swayed.

Do you know what's funny about it? That the piece will be divided and released in other versions. First Original Mix, then Uplifting Mix. Same situation as "I Won't Let You Fall" and this year we have a remix from Space Motion. Could Uplifting Mix be played already at Events?
Another thing is I don't know if anyone sensed but I have the impression that Roger Shah may be responsible for it. Some samples here indicate that a bit.
