About Pale Blue

The collaboration between New Jersey-based Italians Do It Better co-founder Mike Simonetti and vocalist Elizabeth Wight of the L.A. duo Silver Hands, Pale Blue's music shifts from melodic techno to ambient productions while maintaining a dreamy, quietly cathartic mood. As he was writing the songs that appeared on his Capricorn Rising EP, Simonetti remixed some of Silver Hands' tracks; inspired by Wight's wide-ranging voice, the pair's e-mails led to making music together. Taking their moniker from Carl Sagan's name for the 1990 photo of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 space probe, Pale Blue finished recording their debut album late in 2014, when it was announced that Simonetti was leaving Italians Do It Better. The album, The Past We Leave Behind, was released in April 2015 on 2MR ("Two Mikes Records"), a dance imprint co-owned by Simonetti and Captured Tracks' Mike Sniper. ~ Heather Phares
