Interstellar pop icon in the making Dominic Sen announces debut album Visitor, shares new track "Hear Me" Posted on August 7th, 2019
Lightyears clear of the cataclysm that spawned them, and the event horizon that almost unmade them, Dominic Sen, seventh and only surviving child of the supermassive black hole at the centre of “The Evil Eye Galaxy,” drifted around space in limbo ‘til they intercepted the radio waves of broadcasts from 1980’s and 1990’s Earth. Depicting a colorful and thriving pop culture, these songs of our civilization drew Sen to the Sun like a moth to our humble intergalactic flame, and thus Sen arrived and fell in love with the meretricious myth of Earthbound stardom.
Channelling the pervasive and alienating sense of their own otherness, Sen works on our planet as an artist where they have created their debut LP. Visitor is a love story, a space opera, a thought experiment telling the tale of Tal Naata, a biologically human female coming from a distant and socially progressive civilization to study Earth. Taking Tal Naata’s story as their prism, Sen casts our own primitive ideas of gender and social cohesion back at us in shimmering crystalline pop, a sound which hearkens back to those old transmissions which led them here.
The lead single "Hear Me" is out today alongside a campy, sci-fi inspired music video directed by Brittany Reeber and Dominic themselves.
Visitor will be released on Roll Call Records on October 18, and is available for pre-order now on Interstellar White vinyl.
