To say that I am a fan of Frankmusik is an understatement. Just as his last single “Maps” was a return to the excellence of his debut album, his new single “Chasing Shadows” reaches new heights of magnificence. Epic may be a term overused to describe EDM tracks, but it is hard to find another word to describe the magnificence of this track. His voice hits high notes with such beauty, perfection, and emotion that it feels like modern opera with electronic production – something like the Pet Shop Boys would have done for a theatrical score. His writing is also as intelligent as ever- 67,000 miles an hour is the speed of the earth’s rotation – how often do you get an astronomy lesson in a pop song? “Chasing Shadows” is not a floorfilling club anthem (though with the right remix – say Audien or tyDi – it could be), it’s a gorgeous, cinematic electronic ballad that makes us anxious to hear his forthcoming ‘Between’ album which is due next month.
