Beneath With Me

This new release from Kaskade and deadmau5 featuring Skylar Grey is beautifully haunting. Magic always happens when these two team up. The combination has produced possibly my favorite track of all time in “I Remember” which I wrote about here and another solid production called “Move for Me“. This new track is up there with “I Remember” in its beautiful emptiness.

As much as I love the video that has been made for this track, I think that it is important to give first listen to a song without an accompanying visual imposing its view of what the song should make you feel or imagine.

Now to the video. This is an incredible video that kept me entranced as it unfolded. It opens in the aftermath of a car accident on a mountain road overlooking Los Angeles. The camera zooms in on an injured female who remains in the car while her male counterpart lies motionless on the pavement, presumably having been violently ejected. She begins to rise and limps away from the scene of the accident. She seems to be in shock and detached from the horror of what just happened, and she slowly becomes aware of her wounds. As she leaves the scene of the crash and walks in the opposite direction we become aware of a growing light that she is walking towards. The camera leaves her, approaching the intense white light, and pans over to the previously motionless man who now gets up and runs to the car. He desperately tries to arouse the woman and pull her from the wreckage. At the very end she takes a breath as her soul returns and she is pulled back from the white light.
