Alan Walker has captured the electronic world’s attention over his short time in it with his alluring brand of bass-driven music. His singles, “Alone,” “Faded,” and “Sing Me To Sleep” have gained substantial traction and support from multitudes of producers, thus allowing him to climb the ranks to A-list status by 2017.For his newest release, the producer has paired with vocal powerhouse Gavin James to create a touching composition “Tired.” James offers reassuring verses with his usual emotive approach, while Walker provides moving underlay with pitched-up synth bursts and a simple, yet impactful top line that flows well over the track’s bass-line.“Tired” has already amassed over four million views on YouTube, speaking to the reach and appeal of both artists involved.
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.
The tired old “supergroup” concept finally has more potential to be super. Time was, a band of already-famous musicians was most likely to bring together people who already lived (and drank) in the same place—as with, for example, Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper’s Grammys-approved Hollywood Vampires. Today, the ability for artists to collaborate across long distances is nothing new, but something still feels novel about such an accomplished and unpredictable broadband-connected group as Minor Victories.
