Australian prog outfit VOYAGER
have dropped a brand new single along with a stunning video via Prog Magazine
. The song, “Brightstar,” can be seen and heard HERE
Directed by Red Empire Media, the music video encompasses the quintessential nature of Western Australia, displaying the relationship between science, art, and nature. With a montage of drone footage taken from Parkes, CSIRO, and MRO Space Satellite sites across Western Australia, VOYAGER explores the synergy of how science and creative expression go hand in hand.
Vocalist Daniel Estrin comments: “‘Brightstar’ is about the power of rationality, of the importance of science as an art, of facts, of the demise of empirical evidence in favour of blind belief in idols who spit forth a torrent of nonsense and generally about not believing in something or someone because it’s shiny and bright and promises a warm blanket of comfort.
“It’s so refreshing to be playing in such wide open spaces and to use technology to create art. There was definitely something magical about the beauty of this blisteringly hot part of the country and I think this clip will capture that magic. We are proud to be from Perth and we want our fans to see what we see. We also want them to know that we almost burnt to a crisp on 40c heat to bring them this visual treat!”
VOYAGER are set to release a new full length album later this year, via Season of Mist.
