Established in 2017, Berlin-based dark and melancholic Synth-Pop duo BlueForge, comprised of former NewPassion, composer and keyboardist Bjørn and vocalist RooDee, drop an evocative video for the beautiful ballad, written by Dominic Schimmelpfennig, “After All”, taken from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, “Soul Rockets”, scheduled for release in Fall 2021.
“After All” is laced with esoteric lyrics that use natural elements of light and dark to represent the tragic conflict that lies in a man’s heart.
A poignant romantic melancholia of brittle piano notes drive dire moods under the intense pain of compelling baritone male croons, torn emotional cries, and aerial angelic hums, whilst the soft sway of flute swathes flutter around abrasive, droning brass tears, bleeding heart-wrenching revelations into tumultuous tides of hope and despair.
Glistening waves roll against a sullen seashore at sunset, while devastation broods indoors. Frustrated isolation consumes a man lamenting on an ornate dramatic bedroom set cloaked in menacing shadows and broken dreams while the hypnotic ebb and flow of majestic Aquamarine ripples switch into a powerful backward flow of fear left blurring into unseen horizons.
