#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.

The first person to guess what this song is about gets to watch the video before anyone else, right here.

If you know Raw Meat at all, you'll know we like our coffee black, our kittens fluffy, and our hip hop? Well we like that old school.
