How does one honor moments in time, and express that desire through their art?
This is the current creative question of Manchester-based producer Frameworks, who over the past decade has garnered international recognition through his lush, melodic electronic soundscapes.
Frameworks has endeared himself to audiences through his thoughtful, evocative compositions, leading to performances at festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning In A Bottle, Camp Bisco, and Shambhala, collaborations with Island Records staple JP Cooper and Ninja Tune’s Jono McCleery, and a European tour support slot with Emancipator.
Now, Frameworks unveils “BLUE LIGHT,” an emotive, electronic masterpiece alongside Australian vocalist Cleopold. With propulsive rhythms and elegant, melodic synth layers, “BLUE LIGHT” is a pensive listening experience that evokes scenic imagery through its rich, ornate textures.
“Blue Light” kicks off with repeated, nostalgic keyboard chords before Cleopold enters the mix with an angelic verse surrounded by subtle percussion and deep house synth melodies.
The track slowly builds before washing away into its central section, which adds head-bopping drum patterns supplemented by an ethereal, emotionally moving hook. The kaleidoscopic track encourages focus on your momentary feeling, and enjoying that moment through a transcendental atmosphere.
“Blue Light” releases alongside a breathtaking music video directed by Alexander Bather and Cameron Ward. Shot in North Wales and Manchester, the Bonnie and Clyde-style video complements the song’s sumptuous sound with beautiful, landscape-driven cinematography. The gorgeous scenery is then paired with a gritty crime tale full of heart-tugging emotion and endearing characters.
