Italian neoclassical and darkwave veterans Ataraxia unveil their new single and music video, “Coelestis“, the second offering from their forthcoming studio album, “Centaurea“, set for release on 22 May 2024, via The Circle Music. The album will contain eight original compositions and two previously unreleased bonus tracks (CD version only).

“Coelestis” is an awakening to new life, a symbolic shedding of blindness and a connection forged through dance. The video takes viewers on a journey to the island of Centaurea, where priestesses dance with the wind in their hair, their movements mirroring the harmonious grace of swimmers on a lake. White birds flutter like flames, and sunlight bathes the scene in an aura of serenity. Finally, a soul is freed, running barefoot towards a sacred wood and swimming amongst water lilies, a lotus flower blossoming with expanded consciousness.

“‘Coelestis’ is written in the lines of the hand, a journey taking us far away in the presence of the primaeval sun,” explains the band.

The single follows the release of “Viriditas“, Ataraxia’s homage to Mexico and Latin America, and its accompanying music video. Both tracks are part of the upcoming album, “Centaurea”, which is part of a trilogy that began with the previous album “Pomegranate”, a hymn to the elemental spirits, and which will end with a work inspired by the Elysian Fields passing through the Golden Age brought to light by “Centaurea”.

“Centaurea” features eight original compositions and two previously unreleased bonus tracks (available only on the CD version). The lyrics, a blend of ancient and modern languages, are the work of Francesca Nicoli and Mara Paltrinieri, who have collaborated with Ataraxia since their early albums. Cellist Totem Bara contributes his talents to three tracks on the album.

The album will be available in a variety of formats, each boasting unique artwork by Nicolas Ramain, Insetti Xilografi, and Mary Vareli.  A pre-order for the album, including limited edition vinyl and boxset options, is available now via The Circle Music.

“Coelestis” is a captivating glimpse into the world of “Centaurea,” an album that promises to be a kaleidoscope of beauty, where music and art intertwine to create a truly immersive experience.

Previously, Ataraxia released music videos for “The Source”, “Galen” and “Viriditas”, in support of “Centaurea”.
