Greek Post-Rock, Post-Metal, Progressive band Sidus release new single “Pale Dot”
Sidus returns with his new single ‘Pale Dot’, which follows the footsteps of the post-rock legends Mogwai, slowly building the musical tension into an explosive finale. The song is also accompanied by a visualizer music video. It was produced and mixed by Spiros Olivotos (Sidus) and mastered by Steve Lado.
‘Pale Dot’ is a reference to the photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe. It is also a conceptual continuum of the song ‘Prototypes/Replicas’, which explores the fundamental question of nature against nurture. ‘Pale Dot’ is depicting the same existential matter from a more distant perspective, observing human behavior and the interaction between mankind and our planet Earth from outer space.
‘Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar”, every “supreme leader”, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived thereon a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.’ ― Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space
