The band commented:
“Our first d.i.y. animated music video ’Spaced Out’ is a heavy anthem inspired by the late David Bowie. Growling melodies hurled through an extraterrestrial landscape, this song expands on our original idea of a comic character named Critté and her borzoi. This fantasy sci/fi video takes her and the trusting companion cruising through the cosmos. Chopped with heavy guitar riffs and playful synthesizers, it’s a catchy pop inspired style song from our debut album ‘Spaced Out Of Control’ To find more on the origin check out the first EP & comic book ‘Stuart’s Cove’, available at all live shows.”
The band will celebrate the single’s release at High Dive in Seattle on June 16th. GO HERE to RSVP.
With its ‘Space Oddity’-esque outro written as a tribute to David Bowie around the time of his death, lead single Spaced Out features a rich, sing-along chorus before its climactic finish. Lyrically, Oliver addresses simultaneously a desire for and a fear of change, which is brought to positive resolve in the finale with the reminder that, as humans, we are blessed with the power to recover from traumatic events and to continue growing in spite of them.
