ASTRONAUTS – SINGLE REVIEW

Astronauts – Breakout (Lo Recordings) 
Astronauts - Breakout


Release Date: Out Now

Londoner Dan Carney, for he is Astronauts, is the latest in a long and distinguished line of lo-fi electro, folk artists from in and around the British Isles. This latest single, ‘Breakout’, is as downbeat as they come as the tightly strummed acoustic guitar battles with layers of noises, melodies and beats to create the kind of sound that forged successful careers for the likes of Jim Noir, Badly Drawn Boy and David Kitt. What’s different here, though, is that Carney’s smooth vocals and sense of the cinematic means that this could just fly in America as well as being successful in his own back yard. There’s something of the Midlake or Eels about this and that makes it even more appealing so get some in your life.
