Video: Sound Of Contact – Pale Blue Dot
Sound Of Contact have launched a video for their track Pale Blue Dot – view it below.
It’s taken from Dimensionaut, the debut album from Phil Collins’ son Simon and his band, which was released last year.
Collins says the track was inspired by a book entitled The Home Planet, which deals with the experiences of astronauts who went to space as scientists but discovered a greater human truth when they saw the Earth from above.
He explains: “Our lyrics ‘I went up a scientist to find out I’m only human’ is a direct reference to the truth in that book. If only every single one of us on this planet could have a glimpse, like those astronauts have had, can you imagine what a different world we would live in? We would have peace on Earth.
“That’s what’s this song is all about, as our character, Dimensionaut, finally has his own glimpse, and makes it one of his first missions to share that experience with as many people as he can.
“We live in a world full of many forms of poverty; but spiritual poverty is a reality to many who have it all – but still feel empty inside.
“That’s what we’re capturing in the video for the song. I know it will resonate with many.”
Sound Of Contact recently split with co-founder Dave Kerzner, leaving vocalist and drummer Collins and bassist Matt Dorsey the only full-time members, while touring member John Wesley was last year replaced by Randy McStine of Lo-Fi Resistance.
