Marina Matiss looks towards a future on Mars

On February 13, singer/songwriter Marina Matiss released a video for her single “Phoboslight.”

This song is a sci-fi fan’s perfect delight. The song is about Mars colonization and a girl saying goodbye to her loved ones before embarking on the epic journey. It is a journey that she will never return from, and Matiss is brilliant at conveying the intense emotion of such a moment. Not only are the lyrics spot on, but her singing produces the most beautifully heart-wrenching lament that is key to this song.

Then there’s the video. Matiss chose to include footage of key moments in space exploration history, including a brief shot of Amelia Earheart. It’s utterly poetic!
