It’s a Gorgeous Blend of Orchestral & Electronic Elements
Based in Liverpool, Tom Ashbrook has been making his mark on the ambient and electronica world with his unique orchestral style over the past few years. Perfect for fans of Max Cooper, Nils Frahm or Rival Consoles – He’s an artist with an incredible ability to blend genres and combine the best parts of electronic production with full, orchestral masterpieces. On his new single ’30Five’ this has never been more evident. It’s a stunning piece that starts with chilled, ambient melancholy and builds to a full rhythm section.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the new single ‘30Five’, Tom states:
“30five represents my journey to reaching the age of 35. It feels like a tipping point, nearing a scary half way point in life. I wanted to include my vocal in this one to heighten the pressure that builds and builds, leading to a sudden release when the epic drums come in. I’ve had the chance to work with some incredible musician friends on this album, helping me take the tracks to where I wanted them to go, a whole other level. 30five in particular is very special because of that. To me, 30five celebrates overcoming obstacles with the help of family and friends.”
