Martin Garrix has teamed up with David Guetta to deliver his 4th Future Bass anthem titled ‘So Far Away’. With other tracks such as ‘In The Name Of Love‘, ‘Scared To Be Loney‘ and ‘There For You‘, Martin Garrix set high expectations for his newest work. However, the addition of David Guetta helps the trak live up to the hype.
A particularly laidback offering from this powerhouse duo, the track features beautiful male and female vocals from Jamie Scott and Romy Dya. Melancholy guitar licks breathe life into the track as Scott’s gentle tones segue in. The bridge/chorus lays on dense layers of his vocal harmonies, and the teasing drop yields bombastic bass, kicks, vox synths and larger-than-life chords. Romy’s more urgent delivery provides a sweet counterpoint to Scott’s vocals, building the emotion and energy until they unite in melodic perfection. Stunning string arrangements deck out the outro and complete the perfect package.
The release is accompanied by an official music video, directed by Damian Karsznia, that shows two worlds: the world we live in and a world that displays feelings, thoughts, emotions and dreams. The storyline features a young couple who were once in love and are currently struggling with the fact that their relationship has ended. The different elements and objects used in the video create a powerful message that perfectly fits the energy of the song.
