MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW
"Down We Go" by Ashes To Angels
Written by: Lexie
On June 2, Alternative Press exclusively released a music video for Ashes To Angels' "Down We Go." This video maintains a somber tone both in sound and visuals. The dark, cool-colored visual adds drama and gravity to the song's overall feel.
The video features the band performing in harsh conditions -- on rocks, near the water, as a storm erupts. As the song develops, we are introduced to the video's primary focus: a lost, heartbroken young woman who spends most of the video trying to compose and collect herself. As if watching her battle against tears and her pain weren't enough, the distress expressed in the accompanying song only adds to the overall disheartening feel of the piece.
Despite the sadness evoked by the song and video, the sound is still an ear-catching track. The song itself is passionate, loud and melodic.
As a whole, I would rate this piece an 8/10. Go and check it out NOW and let us know what you think! If you like what you hear, you can purchase this song and the rest of AshesToAngels's latest album, "HowToBleed," on iTunes TODAY!
