Track Of The Day #256: The Ballet – Is Anybody Out There?

NY trio The Ballet recently revealed “Is Anybody Out There?” a marvelous hazy meditative synth-pop cut, it’s lifted from their upcoming third album ‘I Blame Society’ out on Fortuna Pop! . Occupying a delectable perching between the bittersweet homo-erotic pop of The Hidden Cameras, and the stately undulating heartbroken sweeps of Magnetic Fields, Greg Goldberg mines his unsettled subconsciousness and surveys the scenes that surround him with eminently pleasing results. Watch the rose-tinted literal undressing of the track depicted in the home found footage of the video below.It’s our sublime track of the day!

Formed in 2005 by Greg Goldberg and Craig Willse (who are both professors and met whilst at graduate school) with Marina Miranda (who they met at a party), The Ballet are still going strong after eight years of DIY queer pop moves, after a few line-up changes (Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Michael O’Neill left in 2007 to join JD Sampson in MEN) and guest appearances from Linton from The Aislers Set and Ramesh from Voxtrot.
