This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… God Is An Astronaut (again) March 2, 2019

trackback

Went to see God Is An Astronaut in The Academy recently and they were brilliant.
A band I’d listened to for a while it was fascinating to see how their sound was actually produced. Live you can see and hear how the songs slowly build and are constructed. In songs where I’d thought was synthesizers was actually the lead guitarists voice. The metal influence also showed in a number of songs. Odd too seeing a frontman standing at a mic stand but rarely using it.
Incidentally God Is An Astronaut were after doing a World tour and played some massive venues around the place. The fact that there are no vocals/lyrics really helps Post Rock bands build their popularity across borders.
Must be great for an Irish band to be very popular elsewhere but not known much at home. You can earn a good living without any attention.
