Deastro’s Moondagger won’t be out until June 23rd—in the meantime, though, we get another inspirational, space-rocking single from the Detroit boy wonder. “Vermillion Plaza” miniaturizes Moondagger’s best assets and shoots them out of a cannon. Plucky synth arpeggios, end-of-the-world choruses, joyously careening melody lines—it’s all there, squashed into a life-affirming three minutes and 50 seconds. And when Deastro’s Randolph Chabot pleads for contact, singing, “Would you be my son / ‘cause all of mine have died?,” it’s less a cry of self-pity than a salute to the power of human connection.
Watch our profile video of the exuberant Mr. Chabot, follow our boy on Twitter, and download ‘Vermillion Plaza’ from The Ghostly Store. Happy Tuesday.
