Pitchfork Premieres Second Single “Vermillion Plaza”

Real Detroit Weekly “Artist Of The Year

Randolph Chabot has been making albums since he was 12 years old — now, at 22, the Detroit-based musician known as Deastro is ready for his close-up.

“Vermillion Plaza” the second single from Deastro’s upcoming full-length debut Moondagger, miniaturizes the album’s best assets and shoots them out of a cannon. Plucky synth arpeggios, end-of-the-world choruses, joyously careening melody lines–it’s all there, squashed into a life-affirming three minutes and 50 seconds. When Chabot pleads for contact, singing, “Would you be my son / ’cause all of mine have died?,” it’s less a cry of self-pity than an exhilarating salute to the power of human connection.

Recently, Chicago-based photographer/videographer James P. Morse–a longtime friend and collaborator of Ghostly’s–followed Chabot around Detroit for a day and edited the footage into “Ghostly Presents: Deastro,” a video profile whose warm, colorful aesthetic matches Chabot’s energy and positivity to a T. Chabot putters around his Detroit home, visits his favorite bookstore, gushes about Isaac Asimov and Simone de Beauvoir, and plays a sweaty, packed show with his band. It’s a loving portrait of an artist who stays true to his beliefs, staying passionate, engaged, and creative in all of his endeavors.

Deastro’s full-band debut, Moondagger, arrives on June 23rd, and his “Vermillion Plaza” single — along with its B-side, a squelchy, lumbering remix by Ghostly Swim featured artist Mux Mool — drops May 12th on Ghostly International.
