FORCE017 – aFlame – Ask The Clouds

Ask The Clouds has spiritual ties to another FORCE song which has yet to be revealed. And although these ties exist, it’s safe to say that aFlame’s work from note dot to close is still some of his best and most original to date.

With every aFlame song emotion and depth are core elements. While Ask the Clouds starts off mellow and dreamy by the end of the piece you’ve moved into an area of drive and purpose. Clean washes of atmosphere swell the edges of this beautifully trancey number while classic stabs draw you into the heart of the song where the true journey begins in full. Arped leads slowly pull you toward the best parts of the song while the haunted vocal wraps you up tight.

What starts so simply grows and changes throughout the song in all the ways you’d hope it would. aFlame finds all the right sounds, all the right patterns, all the right moments to introduce and remove the many elements that make this song so so pure.
