Ana Pac takes us on a romantic space odyssey with her new single Blast Off (Light Years and Beyond) — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“Blast Off (Light Years and Beyond) is about now understanding all the love songs ever written,” the Canadian popster shares. “It’s about the word ‘love’ not being strong enough to describe what you are feeling.”
The track launches with a wah-wah bass tone evoking a spaceship’s time warp — an appropriate opening for a song with such a distinct late ’80s/early-’90s pop sensibility. The Montreal-born, Toronto-based artist’s vocals are crystalline, and infused with a sincere, energetic sweetness reminiscent of early-career Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul or Shanice. The vocals, along with playful lyrics about a romantic space odyssey, take center stage against a backdrop of clean beats and simple, well-placed harmonies. In addition to being about finding that special someone, it’s also quickly turning into a LGBTQIA+ anthem on TikTok thanks to her tribute to her fiancée Jo; the two met on the app and now have a large following as a couple.
“Blast Off is Pac’s third single, and follows the K-Poppy This Is…, and the EDM cut Down In My Whip. As a talented dancer, Pac has appeared in many films and TV shows, including Work It (produced by Alicia Keys) and Feel The Beat. Previously, she was one of Canada’s top speed skaters, and now channels that work ethic and drive into her music.
