Released November 2018

Weaving the story of a lighthouse keeper overseeing a shipping lane infamously named the “Eye Of The Needle” from his outlook at Cape Otway, this latest track from Blue Child Collective is a hooky roots-reggae tune featuring guest vocals from Shannon Sol Carroll, frontman and salty seadog of Sunshine Coast favourites Band Of Frequencies.


Accompanied by a cinematic music video by David Owen Blackley shot on the stormy South West tip of Australia, and featuring work from Dutch animator Chris Liefting, the video recreates a world existing from the treacherous art of navigation, and a lighthouse keeper sent stir crazy by the sight of it. Featuring also Bobby Alu on drums, OJ Newcomb (Afro Dizzi Act) on bass, Ken Allars (Caravana Sun) on trumpet and PaulieB (The Beautiful Girls) on keys/percussion, this is a tune with groove.
