Earlier this year, Mystery Jets' bassist Pete Cochrane's side project, Alpha Celeste, unveiled their first single, the lo-fi pop number "Remembering When." Today, the trio gives the world their second release, the whimsical, 70s-influenced "Pale Blue Nothing."
In marked contrast to their first single, "Pale Blue Nothing" is a spacey, minimalistic wonder that's reminiscent of Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan" and early David Bowie. Cochrane's hushed vocals give gravity to the psychedelic undercurrent that simmers beneath the tracks surface.
Cochrane shows he's more than just a decent bassist, with his playful vocals suiting the moon rock instrumentation of guitarist Miles James and drummer Graham Godfrey.
"Pale Blue Nothing" is a gem of a tune, and hopefully a full length LP is just around the corner.
