The danish based band “Astronaut” follows up on their debut album with new single “Amazing”, recorded in collaboration with star-producer Claudius Mittendorfer (Arctic Monkeys, Temples, Johnny Marr).
In April 2019 the band released their debut album “Silence One”. After a series of good reviews and five-starred live shows in their native country, Astronaut now looks further ahead with their new single and experiments with oriental-sounding synths and drum machines.
Martin Zeppelin, lead singer:
“While mixing “Silence One” in London, I remember playing a new song on the piano. Claudius (Mittendorfer) asked me, why it wasn’t on the album. At that time it wasn’t finished, the lyrics just weren’t there yet. “It’s amazing,” he said, and that line kind of stuck with me. Later on, the song got a more serious twist, when I realized the lyrics were about an old friend, who left without saying goodbye. We felt that the song was different from the ones on “Silence One”, but once it was finished, we knew, that this would be our next release.“

The band is also releasing a live session this November, recorded in the legendary London-based studio “British Grove”.
Rio Bravo, guitar:
"It was just such an incredible opportunity to work with these talented people in British Grove. We were told, that The Rolling Stones recorded there 14 hours before we got there and we really got the feeling that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us. We did two songs from “Silence One” and one new song and we’re so pleased with the result and thankful for working with such talented people."
