Asher Laub - Freefall

Updated: Mar 11, 2020

Following the release of his new music video covering Maroon 5's “Girls Like You,” Asher Laub has released a new single “Freefall” in collaboration with European based producer InsaneBeatz. This record is very unique in the sense of a strong violin presence, played by Asher himself, and the hip hop / electronic beat patterns. The play of the violin is what really makes this track stand out just due to the pure difficulty of blending such intense violin play into a hip like beat. Asher does not miss a step with his play through the entire track.

The record is based on a story of a man who is in need of support after suffering a serious medical condition. The man’s entire life, one that is centered around stability and strength, comes crashing down, and he is unable to even support his family. Through out the track you can feel intense emotion building up that can have you feeling that sense of pressure and despair, yet a releasing uplift. The track is a continuation of a larger story that is unfolding through Asher's other tracks like "Neon Dreams" and "On The Road" off of his upcoming album. The song is fitting for a world that has so much helplessness and despair that everyone is looking for hope and inspiration.

If you thought the violin play was outstanding on this track, Asher is known for break dancing across stages with his LED electric violin. This sets him in a unique category of talent and skill when playing such an underrated instrument, with dancing and light shows incorporated with it. With features on PBS and headlines on CNN, WABC, and NBC, Asher Laub is showing the world over and over again his ability to create his own lane and shine in it.
