Out now via the Black Pill Red Pill label is the newest single and video for Angelspit/Ice Planet 9000: “The Planetoid”. “The Planetoid” will be part of a compilation to be released on Bandcamp in 2023.
Inspired by 70’s science fiction, Jean Michel Jarre, Jodorowsky, Klaus Schulze, Chris Foss, Lovecraft and Vangelis it conjures images of solar winds echoing off an icy planetoid in a forgotten corner of the Universe. The video for the track is inspired by 80’s sci-fi and video games.
Zoog Von Rock explains the concept: “This five-and-a-half-minute instrumental is a homage to 80s sci-fi. We only used synths available in the 80s (E-mu Emax, Jupiter 8, Modular synth, ARP 2500, MiniMoog, SCI Prophet 5, Yamaha CS-80). We wanted to create something that was reminiscent of a childhood full of wonder and Saturday matinee science fiction. This track follows on from the concept of the “Sequence 1: Glass Jar” album, exploring a frozen planetoid hidden in a nebula surrounded by a ring of ice asteroids.”
Here’s the video for the track.
