Ghost Tapes #10

Mar 10, 2021 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

Irish instrumental post-rock outfit God Is An Astronaut is not as well-known as you would think for a band whose current lifespan now includes 10 studio albums over a 20-year musical odyssey. This is probably a result of music critic toadies pigeonholing the experimental rock outfit as post-rock.
While elements of post-rock permeate throughout the dynamic and tight rhythms, the band successfully eschews the soft-loud-soft aesthetic for a more balanced and well-rounded sound. The hammering, rhythmic drumming and supercharged guitars flirt with the technical dexterity of prog, but with the inclusion of waves of synths, the quartet’s compositions seamlessly transition through a varied sonic landscape ranging from intense and turbulent to contemplative and poignant. Buckle up and enjoy the ride! (www.godisanastronaut.com)
