Observing the world and the plight of humanity as if perched cross-legged on the edge of the moon, Varley’s existential themes cover the planet’s lonely existence within the universe as well focusing in to tackle the everyday minutia of human life.
‘Is Anyone Out There’ is a tongue in cheek call to any alien life forms that may be out there, to come and help us stop destroying the Earth. The track has actually been transmitted out into space using a 20 foot parabolic satellite dish in the US. We await a response!
‘The Man Who Fell To Earth‘ tells the story of Jose Matata, an African immigrant whose body was found in a quiet suburban street one morning after falling out of the fuselage of a British Airways plane above London in 2009, attempting to illegally gain entry to the UK. It’s a powerful and timely piece of social commentary.
Songs like ‘Outside Over There’ and ‘Talking Cat Blues’ show off Varley’s storytelling prowesss while ‘Seize The Night’ and ‘From Halcyon’ take a more nostalgic approach, lamenting lost friends and times past.
