Seven Lions returns on his own Ophelia Records with an old friend and collaborator in tow – Fiora.
Together, they released “After Dark” – the second single off an EP project from Seven Lions, which liberally features the vocalist throughout. “After Dark” follows an already rich history of commercially successful tracks on Ophelia Records, tracks like “Dreamin” (also featuring Fiora), “Ocean”, and “Calling You Home”. Fiora as a collaborator dates back to 2012, when she was the featured vocalist on one of Seven Lions’ most beloved tracks “Days to Come”. Joining Seven Lions and Fiora is Israeli Psytrance master Blastoyz. This will be the first collaboration between Seven Lions and Blastoyz.
“After Dark” fuses together a dark array of synthesizers, and hypnotizing vocals from Fiora. Heavy thumping chords, and Fiora’s deep vocals build up the track into the first drop, where the track transforms into high energy psytrance. Blastoyz‘s psytrance style is interweaved throughout the track with melodic reminders from Seven Lions.
The project will be released shortly before The Journey 2 Tour (tickets at http://sevenlions.com/thejourney2tour/), where Seven Lions will embark on a 43 date North American bus tour. Joining him on tour will be melodic dubstep standout MitiS, Anjunabeats mainstay Jason Ross, and scene newcomer Dabin.
