Astronauts, etc. - 'Eye to Eye'
Info: Astronauts, etc. have released the third single, "Eye to Eye" from the forthcoming debut album, Mind Out Wandering, out Sept. 18th on Hit City U.S.A. In the words of band leader Anthony Ferraro; "With 'Eye to Eye' I tried stripping the 'pop song' down to its essential parts and then reconstructing it as succinctly as possible." "One vocal melody covering both verse and chorus. One guitar riff. One perpetual drum beat. Economy pop."
And there's a lot to be said for this approach, you can just sit back and let the funky grooves do all of the work for you, sometimes I think we can put too many layers on songs and over-complicate matters when all you really need to do is focus on what sounds great. Like previous singles 'No Justice' and 'I Know' Ferraro gifts us with a glorious piece of pop chic, keyboards and guitar providing effortless rhythm to compliment his sedative vocals, 'Eye to Eye' is a laudable modern homage to 70's disco and funk, roll on the 18th of September.
You can pre-order Mind Out Wandering on vinyl here (The 10-song set was recorded live to tape at San Francisco's Tiny Telephone recording studio. The vinyl is a pure-analog artifact, having never run through any digital processing.) or digitally at iTunes here.
