Evanescence’s Amy Lee shows a very different side of her music to her fans with the release of her song, Push The Button which is featured on Aftermath, the soundtrack for the movie War Story which is currently available on iTunes here. The song brings delicious blend of tones in an electronic ambient infused track. The track was created by Amy as the film director struggled to find the right music for a particular scene.

The name was already familiar to me because of his glam styled antics was with Roxy Music and production work with David Bowie, Robert Fripp and of course U2.

Nearly all the early new wave pioneers claimed to be inspired by either Eno or Kraftwerk to some extent, but there seemed to be a large gap in following the trail of modern ambient music backward. While much of Eno’s work featured vocals, it was the breakthrough album Discreet Music from the mid-seventies that would start him on the path of true ambient music.
