Tahiti Boy and the Palmtree family: Journey Man

Nice use of some Nasa footage by Tahiti Boy and the Palmtree family for the track Journey Man.

The Paris-based act use vintage footage of the Apollo 11 mission for the track, a nice match for the music with its occasional nod to the rock music of the late 60s and early 70s.

The video and the music share the sense of optimism of that era, a feeling that the moon landing was just the start, coinciding with a post 60s idealism that the music that shaped society in that decade was going to continue to make things better.

Obviously that optimism was somewhat misplaced, giving a look at that time from the 21st century a touch of melancholy.  It's a situation the band sound like they are well aware of.

Tahiti Boy & The Palmtree Family released their second album Songs of Vertigo in March earlier this year.
