Embark on a captivating sonic voyage with the mesmerizing new album “Embers” from the internationally acclaimed instrumental band, God Is an Astronaut.

 

GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT has mesmerized audiences worldwide with their distinctive sonic tapestry both in dynamic live performances and through their recorded works. Amidst their perpetual whirlwind of touring, the Wicklow-based trio emerges once more with a freshly crafted studio album, set to debut on September 6th, 2024, courtesy of Napalm Records!

 

“Embers” represents the band’s most extensive and grandiose production to date. From the very first note to the lingering resonance of its finale, “Embers” quietly but confidently affirms their mastery of their craft.

 

Founded by brothers Torsten and Niels Kinsella, the band has once again created an exceptional collection of songs, inviting listeners to explore and interpret them in their unique ways.

 

The first official single “Falling Leaves” is a reflective voyage through the brevity of our existence, spanning from inception to demise. The progressive up-tempo album title track masterfully balances intricate melodies with haunting undertones with synth-laden and often menacing shredding passages, but still manages to balance the light and dark. Tracks such as the simply epic “Odyssey” provide an exhilarating ride blending all facets of the band’s incredible songwriting skills.

 

From psych- to excellent krautrock trips, driving rhythms by drummer Lloyd Hanney and collaborations with guest musicians, including Dara O’Brien, Jo Quail and Sean Coleman further enrich the album’s sonic space incorporating elements such as sitar, cello, zither, shamanic drums, bowed psaltery, chimes and tanpura.

 

Featuring artwork by the internationally renowned Irish artist David Rooney and mastered by Europe’s foremost mastering engineer Streaky, GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT achieves remarkable heights with their latest Progressive, Psychedelic, Instrumental Post-rock opus, “Embers”!
