Chasing Stars

by Andrew MacGregor

Alesso: “Chasing Stars” - 3 mins 05s

This three-pronged collaboration between DJs Alesso, Marshmello, and singer James Bay surprised us with the lyric, "We were chasing stars/Across the county lines". At first it sounds like a rose-tinted view of drug trafficking, but we doubt that thought crossed the songwriter's mind at all. At least we hope it didn't.

We feel on firmer ground with Jim Jelicich's accompanying promo, which plonks Bay into an old-school video shop-cum-memory bank. Track the analogue love story if you wish, or focus on the strange raft of new releases found on Bay's shelves - standouts include 'Stalag 1', 'Captain Right', and the sequel to 'Skylon'.
