St. Paul & The Broken Bones have released a new video for “Sea Star”, the vanguard track from the album Angels In Science Fiction due out April 21st from ATO Records.
In the black and white video for “Sea Star”, Broken Bones frontman Paul Janeway traverses stark, almost apocalyptic scenes of the band’s native Alabama to the tune’s ambling hip hop backbeat, brookish key tones, and precision guitar flourishes.
“‘Sea Star’ comes from a story told to me when I was young,” said Janeway in a statement accompanying the single. “The story goes that there was a man on the seashore, picking up starfish that had washed up and throwing them back into the sea. A person walked by and said, ‘Sir, you’re not going to make a dent in this. It’s not possible.’ The man chucked a starfish into the ocean and said, ‘I made a difference for that one.’ Then picked up another one, threw it into the ocean, and again said, ‘I made a difference for that one.’ I think about that story a lot in my own life, and I hope that the moral is one that I teach my child: ‘Try your best to make a difference, starting with the people that are around you.’”
Angels In Science Fiction was produced by Matt Ross-Spang at the Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, and is available to order now.
