Holy schmoly. Drop everything you're doing now and watch/listen the below video.
Because, believe it or not, it's a live and acoustic version of Above & Beyond's Sun & Moon.
How bleeding amazing was that? For one to be even more impressed, one should at least be aware that Above & Beyond are in-fact an English dance music group consisting of members Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki.
That trivia was taken off Wikipedia because, contrary to popular belief, I am really not in tune with these kind of things. I only learnt recently that the term 'EDM' stands for 'electronic dance music'. (Silly me thought my friend was referring 'electronic direct mailer', which was a very confusing conversation to me.)
Anyway, here's a litle more about this project as explained by THUMP:
Earlier this year, Above & Beyond performed some of their best-loved songs acoustically as part of a 15-piece band, across four sold out shows at London's famous Porchester Hall. The response from fans was overwhelming and led to two sold-out nights at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles in October, described by Billboard Magazine as "one of the finest and more memorable shows in EDM history."
Above & Beyond partnered with THUMP on the production and filming of the London shows to create a concert film that captures the Porchester Hall performances and the story behind the acoustic project. The songs performed at Porchester Hall also form the basis of the "Above & Beyond Acoustic" studio album, which was recorded in the spring and summer of 2013 and features a 24-piece orchestra.
The song 'Sun & Moon' is vaguely familiar to me and, as it turns out, is one of their best-loved tracks. It tells the story of a bittersweet love affair, and the pain and release of a couple's break-up.
So beautiful. Why don't they keep to producing these kind of music instead? If you're keen, you can catch the full concert here.
