Ross From Friends channels major nostalgia in new family-infleunced ‘Pale Blue Dot’ video
Make no mistake, Ross From Friends doesn’t want to be taken too seriously. Born Felix Clary Weatherall, Friends is known for his punny pseudonym and feel-good tunes which are as easy to get lost in on just the repeated listens as they are with the hour-long loops online. Weatherall has just shared a video for a new song “Pale Blue Dot,” from his upcoming album Family Portrait.
The accompanying video’s a grainy VHS video shot by Ross From Friends’ mother, Jo Weatherall, who recorded Ross’ father, Jamie Clary, while the two were traveling through London and Europe right when they met in 1990. “Pale Blue Dot” is an appropriate lead for Ross’ new album, dedicated largely to his father, as it too nods to the influence of his parents on his music, particularly the sounds of hi-NRG dance, Italo disco, and proto-Techno.
Family Portrait album is out July 27 via Brainfeeder.
