Above & Beyond’s incredible acoustic performance of their world-renowned hit Sun & Moon has now been released on video for your viewing pleasure. The video is taken from their upcoming Above & Beyond Acoustic concert film, set to premiere Jan. 24 on Vice’s THUMP channel. Footage comes courtesy of their sold out shows at London’s Porchester Hall.
Featuring live vocals from Alex Vargas–who substituted for the original vocalist, Richard Bedford–and a 15-piece orchestra, the acoustic version of the all-time classic is an elegant and heart-wrenching reimagination of the original crowd favourite.
During an interview with Rolling Stone last month, Above & Beyond’s own Paavo Siljamäki spoke about the creative process behind the song.
“Sun & Moon is one of our best-loved songs and probably the one that evokes the biggest crowd response all over the world, so it was an interesting challenge to try to create an acoustic version that might connect in the same way.”
