(They’ve forgotten, they’ve forgotten...) There’s a place, there’s a place Never thought they’d feel the sun in all these days But there’s a place, there’s a place Yet it ain’t here and you don’t see that day is on their skin It’s overlooked, overlooked You find a mirror and praise yourself Overlooked… (They’ve forgotten, they’ve forgotten...) There’s a time, there’s a place (MPX-Ooohs) Some of us were equal, some did not exist It’s on her face, it’s on his face Light years now, you still disavow the favours of your skin It’s overlooked, overlooked You use their image to sell yourself Overlooked... (MPX-Aahs) There’s a place, there’s a time... Fallen now, the tables still turn Feeling how those labels will burn Falling out and walling us in Call it out, we’re calling us in! Call it out, we’re calling us in! Call it out, we’re calling us in! Look at yourself, look in the mirror What did you see? What did you overlook? (MPX-Ooohs) You see a mirror and praise yourself (MPX-Ooohs)

about

'Dark Sight of the Moon' is the final chapter of the trilogy that began with 'Alice in Stevie Wonderland' (2005) and continued with the sequel 'The Good, the Beige & the Ugly (2012).'

The new record is the last chapter in a narratively-linked trilogy of albums alongside The Good, The Beige & The Ugly (2012), and Alice In Stevie Wonderland (2005). The triptych of albums tells the story of Micropixie’s journey to earth and her conflicted search for her true identity among humans, whose behavior she finds illogical. This sci-fi journey parallels Friend’s personal reflections on her own real-world background and international heritage. Micropixie summarizes this complex interweaving of fact, fiction, and cultural politics in her animated short film, “50 Shades of Beige”.

Made with award-winning producer Galician producer Paco Serén of Spain underground legends Los Piratas, and featuring contributions from Rob Myers and Ashish "Hash” Vyas of Thievery Corporation, Dark Sight of the Moon layers psych-pop instrumentation over Micropixie’s melodically deadpan vocals to create a hypnotic mix that she calls “Tripadelica.” Dark Sight of the Moon is intergalactic in scope, international in outlook, and highly personal in its invitation to the listener to step into Micropixie’s uncannily enticing world.

The first song from this album, 'New Year's Day', released as a single on 1st January 2019, was a New York Times Top 10 pick, chosen by their top music critic, Jon Pareles.
