“Jupiter,” the latest musical opus from Pocket Sun, is a transcendent sonic journey that immerses listeners in a world of alternative pop, psychedelia, and jazz. Crafted under the time constraints of a mere month, the track is a testament to the band’s creative synergy, effortlessly blending their individual styles and influences into a harmonious composition. Led by the visionary Gina Marie Tratt, Pocket Sun’s ethereal melodies and hypnotic grooves create a synesthetic experience that beckons listeners to close their eyes and surrender to the enchantment. The woozy synth-fueled landscape from which the song emerges sets the stage for a cosmic exploration, tinged with nostalgia and playful experimentation.
Lyrically, “Jupiter” draws inspiration from universal themes such as escapism, consciousness, and nostalgia. Pocket Sun infuses these topics with a unique poetic flair, delving into the spiritual depths of collective experiences. The result is a lyrical tapestry that resonates on both a personal and universal level, inviting listeners to reflect on their own journeys through life. Accompanying the celestial soundscape is a visually captivating music video, co-directed by Laurence and Gina, unfolding the story of an alien explorer’s quest to experience humanity. The video adds a poignant layer to the song, exploring themes of searching, acceptance, and rejection as the alien encounters a band playing music.
“Jupiter” stands as a testament to Pocket Sun’s artistic evolution over the past four years, marked by a consistent stream of singles and EPs. With a re-release of “Wake Up” on Kitsuné and captivating live performances across the UK, the band continues to carve a unique space in the music scene. In essence, “Jupiter” is more than a song; it’s a cosmic invitation to explore the boundless realms of musical and visual expression, offering listeners an immersive experience that transcends the ordinary and transports them into the extraordinary.
