RADSOUND // SOTW: IN MY DIRECTION – ASTRONAUTS
Originally published on Radsound
Astronauts – also known as the solo project of London based musician Dan Carney, formerly of Dark Captain – has been producing slices of ambient folk-tinged music since 2013 and ‘In My Direction’ is the latest single from the debut LP, ‘Hollow Ponds’.
Spurred on by a lo-fi trip hop hinting beat and an uneasy acoustic guitar, the track is five minutes of tense loops and hypnotic realms completed by the lucscious soothing harmonies of Carney’s vocal, and though soft on the ears, is a piece of such admirable intricacy you cannot help but wonder what beauty Astronauts will provide us with over the rest of the year.
‘In My Direction’, alongside ‘Hollow Pond’, is out now.
