"'Out of the Ashes' the most recent release from electronic act View19, builds upon a strong classic electropop core incorporating the mood of a more modern synthpop with some delicate edm tendencies specially in the drumbeats department and of course some fine synthwave elements can be spotted as well, specially at the intro and bridge sections. Talking about the drums production, it feels very varied and very well produced, View19 knows how to play well with layers of beats without reaching overproduduction. The band finds a pleasant balance between the old and the new electronic schools , and reach a highlight with the personality perceived in the strong vocal tone and style. The lyrics shine as well with a poetic message that is boosted with a deep and passionate vocal performance. They manage a very interesting image of some mistery and introspection, just checkout their views in the form of questions in their biography, no wonder why they chose that act name! Please add View19 to your electronic music collection, they promise almost constant releases and are really worth to be following."

INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
View19 features the music video of their 5th single "Out of the Ashes"
Where is your Phoenix? Out of the Ashes; rising up while channeling your pursuit, passion, and resolve to attain new heights. May we each delve deeper than ever before with a renewed focus, confidence, and sense of spirit.
WHO - VIEW19 CONSISTS OF TWO RESTLESS VISIONARIES (AKA, TWO DUDES) THAT DECIDED TO WRITE SONGS TOGETHER IN ORDER TO REMAIN RELATIVELY SANE. SO FAR SO GOOD.
WHAT - OUR GOAL IS TO CREATE MUSIC AND LYRICS THAT OFFER A UNIQUE VANTAGE POINT IN SOME WAY. LOOKING FOR THAT RARE BIRD. DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. SOMETHING THAT RESONATES. YOU GET THE IDEA.
WHERE - THE TWO DUDES ARE BASED IN CONNECTICUT, WHERE WE FEEL WE CAN BE TRANSPLANTED BUT STILL SUSTAIN. BUT WE SEEK INSPIRATION BEYOND BORDERS AS A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE.
WHEN - CRYSTAL BALLS AND COMMON SENSE NONWITHSTANDING, VIEW19 AIMS TO RELEASE AN ORIGINAL SONG ON A SEMI-MONTHLY BASIS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
WHY - WE LOVE MUSIC. WHY ELSE? ARE THERE TOO MANY SONGS OUT THERE ALREADY? NEVER. WOULD A TRUE SPORTS FAN GET TIRED OF NEW MATCHUPS? NEVER. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ENDLESS VARIATIONS. LIFE IS CIRCUITOUS.
HOW - OUR APPROACH IS HIGHLY PROPRIETARY AND CANNOT BE DISCLOSED. ALL WE CAN SAY AT THIS POINT IS THAT THE PART ABOUT SANITY BEING RELATIVE PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN OUR PROCESS.
