Their music videos are known for their artistic nature and contemplative storytelling style, a mixture that brings their songs to life in an unexpected fashion.
What would it be like if alien’s made contact with our world? The Naveblues explore the adventure of Voyager 1 and the idea of making contact in their new video, “Pale Blue Dot.” Their infusion of gritty blues-rock serves as the psychedelic story of the Voyager 1 launch, from the first photograph of Earth (the “Pale Blue Dot”) to the eventual departure for deep space. In the video, alien’s discover the famous Golden Record, a digital map of where Earth is in the universe. In an effort to make contact with our world, they send it back to be discovered by one of us. After the alien’s lead a man to the Golden Record, he runs over stunning mountains and past vivid blue lakes after the alien light trying to make sense of the message. When he finally finds the alignment in the sky it’s a vibrant, scenic tribute to our place in the universe laid out in glowing lights amongst the stars. It is at this moment that the message of the Golden Record becomes crystal clear. We have made contact with universal life.
The Naveblues pay tribute to the beauty of Earth as they howl “Take care of the pale blue dot,” echoing the sentiment of Carl Sagan, the astronomer and author that curated the Golden Record. Of the Voyager 1 journey, he said, “To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” The new video for “Pale Blue Dot” tells the story of a potential future that should encourage us all to take care of this place we call home. “Pale Blue Dot” is out now.
