AMETHYSTS must love precious stones and the color purple very much. Even their new single Be There comes with artwork drenched in a deep violet hue. The pair, who first spellbound us over a year ago with their debut single My Love, make a sublime return on new dulcet glimmering, lissome billowing ballad Be There. It’s a soulful and ambient pop song steeped in liquid synths and dreamy glistening guitars.  Clarice and Simon, the two talents who make up AMETHYSTS, spent the second half of last year hidden away in a rural studio in the idyllic eastern countryside crafting their new music. 

Discussing the single, the duo stated: “Be There explores and conveys the passion and ambition in us both, lyrically and musically. After an evening of jamming, its 6/8 time signature and catchy vocal line just fell into place within a few hours. It’s the first song we’ve written in 6/8. Clarice took to writing the lyrics from an optimistic yet emotional place hoping it would help to self heal during a personal family affair”. Be There will be available on all major digital platforms on February 5th, and an EP is expected to arrive later this year.

East Coast beat alchemist and song sorcerer LZRD has taken Krewella’s massively infectious hit single Be There a sky scraping, mountainous climbing, and wildly lifting remix with ridiculously euphoric drops. The vast sprawling, panoramic soaring edit is but more evidence of this rising producer’s talent. One listen and you’ll be hooked on LZRD’s dynamic and explosive take. He doesn’t dawdle at launching us straight into a feel good thrill ride, complete with beautiful vistas to catch our breaths and high voltage breaks to leave us gasping for air once again. Download the magnificent future bass and electro trap remix, here.

The dark dissonant, eerie haunting synths that greeted my ears when I first waded into Be There sank their talons deep into me. It was clear there’d be no escaping the grasp of this electronic track from a Sydney based producer named Conor Moran who shares his music as WILDLYF. Soon afterwards, WILDLYF assaults us with a welcome wall of rattling bass and quivering beats as Be There goes full on future trap on us, while sonorous vocalist Erin Finlay ascends like a phoenix in this dark jolting sea of turbulent, tumultuous electronica. Be There’s cinematic trap and evocative future bass left me gasping for air and dizzy with joy. Curious as to who this stunning producer might be, I dove head first into the rest of his music on Soundcloud, which includes an array of superb remixes. I can’t fathom how I never encountered his music prior to now. His remix of Blackbear’s Wanderlust has only be streamed well over a million times. Take that electrifying future trap edit for a spin below. Be There can be streamed, purchased, or downloaded for free, here.

OFFICIAL VID: Seafret – Be There

June 30, 2015

Here with a new cinematic video and song is fast rising UK duo Seafret, who never fails to capture my heart with their emotive indie rock music. New tune Be There is an achingly bittersweet gem that first premiered last Wednesday on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show. It’s taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album, out later this year. Seafret explained that the song comes from a very personal space. It’s “about being there for the person that needs you most in life no matter what, it’s about making more than a promise.” The swooning, simmering tune is available now, here.

It’s been over half a year since we last heard form Saint Raymond, and I was beginning to wonder what the UK act has been up to, when this driving gem surfaced. Be There is another infectious tune to add to Callum Barrows’ radiant repertoire. As before, the plucky brightness of the song reminds me of Two Door Cinema Club, but infused with some Coasts cinematics and a bit of a Noah and the Whale or Charlie Fink sort of upbeat brooding (and this is in reference to now defunct Noah and the Whale’s latter albums). Coasts is the hooking first single from Saint Raymond’s just announced debut album, Young Blood, out June 29th via Asylum.
