Spatially grounded, Astronauts, etc share new single, I Know

28 Apr

astronauts, etcThe first rays of sunlight provide a nascent glow for a few minutes before the sun fully rises. Those moments are like new cells, mimicking their environment, giving back the same emotion that surrounds them. Fresh and flowing, “I Know” from Astronauts, etc reflects the light newness of the dawn.

Vocals by Anthony Ferraro float near a falsetto, while the keys and guitar guide him. Ferraro is the main force behind Astronauts, etc, but you may be familiar with him as the keyboardist in Toro Y Moi’s touring band. He also has been getting some attention for combining cold, lifeless machines and life-giving art with his Hypothetical Beats algorithm. Talent abounds in this young classical pianist-turned-producer, but he won’t be bound to one path; he takes the tried-and-true and makes it all his own. That is to say, despite his recent knack for computer science, he recorded “I Know” with a full band on analog, and had it mixed and mastered on tape.

Astronauts, etc’s EP, Sadie, is out now on Hit City Records. For more information on Astronauts, etc, visit his Facebook, Twitter, and Bandcamp.
