#37 Astronauts - In My Direction

London-based musician Dan Carney, otherwise known as Astronauts, will release new single 'In My Direction' with Lo Recordings, 19.01.15.

Taken from Astronauts' debut album, Hollow Ponds, the single combines solid (almost tribal) drums, rippling acoustic guitar and minimal touches of piano. The vocals move between touching harmonies and a call and response between two Carneys. Self-described as 'dad-folk' I think there's something a bit darker going on here; as though there's an aural subtext. Carney creates a dance-folk feeling, using elements of both genres to create a catchy, but understated track.

The video for 'In My Direction' is by Armenia-based production company Manana Films, after they approached Dan about collaboration earlier this year. It stars Armenian actor, Andranik Lavchyan rhythmically wending his way around the capital Yerevan.

Today (well yesterday actually) we are welcomed back into the world of Dead Horse.

Birmingham's scrappiest scrubbers are back with their latest single, 'Generation Doom', complete with an upliftingly accurate music video.

Originally making a name with grunge trio, Tigercub, NANCY parades warped, warbling riffs and smooth, swinging vocals in what very much feels like a candid exploration of self.
