Pale Blue Dot

Electronic PRess Kit



Pale Blue Dot is the brainchild of Charlottesville, Virginia native Tony LaRocco, who has assembled a group of musicians committed to exploring the possibilities presented by his songwriting. Left turns abound in the band’s approach to arranging which invokes the members’ influences, ranging from pop, alternative, progressive rock, folk, and bebop jazz. Pale Blue Dot is an emergent entity founded on robust, educated, and communicative musicianship. Recorded in studios in the Shenandoah Valley, Nashville, and Washington, D.C., Pale Blue Dot's new LP is coming May 25th 2018.

Press quotes

"On the EP Telescopes, we find funky arrangements and an original sound where the guitar parts seem intuitively placed. These songs by Virginia-based Pale Blue Dot feel familiar and comfortable on the first listen, despite being completely original and with philosophical and poetic lyrics." - Modern Rock Review


"LaRocco wrote everything on Telescopes but opened the arrangement chores to the rest of the band as well...and I think that's what put the frosting on the sonic cake, as the mixture of approaches is infectiously myriad within its own scope. By the time the disc winds down, you'll find yourself dreamy and ready to hit the midnight road under silvery moonlight. Don't worry as you pass that guy seat-dancing with a bottle of bourbon and grinning in the car parked by a lonely mesa. He isn't crazy. He's me. - Veritas Vampires 


"Pale Blue Dot is a great independent pop rock quartet who sings mind numbing songs about our vast universe." - Jersey Beat
