I just wrapped up a nice little project for Elle Magazine. I was really pumped that I got to use this track on the project. Active Child had me at hello. This is the first of a new weekly series I am going to do called HIGHLY LICENSABLE where I am going to highlight a track that I think has great licensing potential and why.

This track is emotional….but when put to picture……it’s incredible. The vocals are strong without being overpowering and the angelic sound of the music itself is transporting. It’s dreamy without being sleepy and it has this slight touch of Vangelis to it that really rings the memory bell for me (if you never heard the soundtrack to Chariots of Fire…..go listen to it – the link to the YouTube vid is above – it’s classic). I bet we hear this Active Child song in ALOT of feature films. Enjoy.

    I just caught a performance by this band at MOOGFEST and it was fantastic. I am now curious as to how you came upon their music. From what I can tell, I don’t feel like Active Child is a household name yet:)

      You lucky girl getting to go to MOOGFEST – I am jealous! I found one of his tracks on a blog……that’s my job, to hunt out what is not yet a household name. I think he is so unique. My prediction for Active Child is that he will score a film in the next 2 years. He has got what it takes to create massive emotion with his music.
