Bend the Future emerged as a remarkable discovery through Metalhead Community Submissions, and their debut single, "Reaching For," showcases their immense talent and creativity. It is a privilege to come across such creative musicians, artists, and bands from all corners of the globe, and Bend the Future is undoubtedly among them. Despite being their first release, I have a strong belief in the capabilities of these French gentlemen.

"Reaching For" is a musical delight that will undoubtedly satisfy ambient music enthusiasts. As a fan of this genre myself, I found myself thoroughly enjoying every second of the song. Upon my initial listen, I couldn't help but wonder about the band's cultural background. Few can blend Western and Eastern influences as skillfully as Bend the Future, showcasing a refreshing departure from the dominance of American-influenced music. It is a testament to the growing interest in embracing freshness in all forms of music.

The brilliance of "Reaching For" lies in its simplicity and the creative, authentic, and progressive elements seamlessly woven into the composition. Bend the Future effortlessly captures a mood that allows listeners to lose themselves in the music. What struck me most was their exceptional fusion of Western and Eastern influences, elevating their already rich musical palette. After a few listens, it became clear that advanced musicians like Bend the Future will continue to create effortlessly. Their melodies, phrasing, and flow-building exhibit a level of mastery that hints at their potential to reach the pinnacle of their genre, influencing millions and shaping its future.
