Embarking on a cosmic journey with Thy Veils, I find myself immersed in the otherworldly spectacle of their latest creation, “Here We Are Sidereal”, released on the auspicious date of November 9th, 2023. As the ethereal sounds gently unfold, the video unfolds a universe of enchantment captured during a live dance show at the Galactic Tick Festival in Timișoara, Romania. The opening frames transport me to a galaxy-like setting, where a ballet-like dance begins against the backdrop of celestial hues. A percussion-like heartbeat resonates at the 0:20 timestamp, marking the commencement of a visual symphony. Soon, the stage is ablaze with lights of various colors, creating an atmosphere that feels like dancing in outer space, surrounded by the cosmic wonders. At 1:27, the lead singer’s angelic voice emerges like a fountain of chocolate, perfectly complementing the intricate instrumentation, and at 1:40, her presence is unveiled, adding a captivating visual layer to the cosmic ballet.
The video is a masterful composition of diverse dance forms, from ballet to breakdancing, all seamlessly coexisting in perfect synchronization and harmony. Each dancer, including Alexandra Girbea, Denisa Coropca, Diana Abdo, Andra Cara, Sara Ghilezan, Miruna Herec, Andreea & Mohamed Irksousi, Andrei Lazar, Marin Lupanciuc, and Sebastian Teodorovici, contributes to the celestial dance with individuality yet collective brilliance. The video’s standout feature lies in its ability to celebrate uniqueness within a harmonious cosmic narrative. It’s not just a performance; it’s a cosmic celebration of humanity’s first cosmic holiday.
