Charlottesville Rockers, Pale Blue Dot, share a creative chemistry that enriches the listening experience throughout their latest album release, ‘Anatomy’.
Kicking off with the first track, “I Know”, Pale Blue Dot begin with an instrumental synergy that serves as a vehicle for the lyrical direction which speaks of coming to the realization that an interpersonal relationship has reached the end of its course and that it is time to take the necessary steps toward moving on. The second track, “Only Love”, begins with an Indie Rock energy that takes listeners into the deep end as lyrics speak of learning to redirect one’s perception back to the most important piece of life, love. “Stained Glass Window” is the third track that instrumentally mimics the likes of Counting Crows and lyrically takes a turn toward struggle and how remaining open and looking beyond what you know can create an opportunity to learn and grow. The fourth track, “Dust and Light”, lyrically channels the album title as pieces of science metaphorically find their way into explaining how small we as human beings are in the bigger picture and against how massive Planet Earth is.
“Yesterday’s News” is the fifth track that takes the album for a turn into a melodic atmosphere as Lead Vocalist, Tony LaRocco, stands strong in his vulnerability and reaches inside of himself to find what is keeping him from closing a chapter that no longer serves his present. The sixth track, “Canyons”, initially creates the feeling of a Phil Collins track while carrying a beautiful instrumental opening that leads into lyrics that speak of twisting and turning through a variety of life experiences and encountering challenges along the way as an individual attempts to pave the way for a new beginning. “Suitcase” is the seventh track in which lyrics that highlight reaching a point where falling at the feet of an individual feels like the only way to further connect, yet the guys of Pale Blue Dot are willing to set their pride aside to create a brighter picture of love. The eighth track, “The Harlot and The Gambler”, begins with lusty instrumentals that blend seamlessly with the lyrical trajectory that speaks of choosing to see the reality of an individual stringing along, using and emotionally abusing the privilege of another’s time, energy and love. Closing out with “Lo and Behold”, Pale Blue Dot slows it down and lyrically reaches a point of wanting to give a relationship their all for once and for all.
Pale Blue Dot have created a dynamic bundle of Alternative Rock while waxing and waning through indecision when it comes to love throughout ‘Anatomy’.
