As many of us crave space away from the confinements of Coronavirus induced quarantine, Auxiliary Phoenix, Gentle Jones and Jesse Dangerously provide brief musical respite.
The track finds long-time colleagues Gentle Jones and Jesse Dangerously laying down vocals over a calming beat that pays tribute to the vastness of the universe. Jones and Dangerously can trace their friendship as far back as the nineties and the heady days of mp3.com. When it was more an essential resource for independent musicians than the retro music blog it has now become.
Themed around the premise of taking someone you love to the farthest reaches of space the song is titled ‘Edge of the Universe’.
Accompanying the song is a lyric video, the visuals for which were created using stock imagery. The beauty of space echoed in the sweet sentiments of the track.
‘Edge of the Universe’ provides a brief escape from the current confinements imposed by the effects of Coronavirus. Though quarantined in our homes, for a brief moment we can imagine ourselves lost in the vastness of space with the one we love.
