First official single »Falling Leaves«, out now on all digital streaming platforms, is “a reflective voyage through the brevity of our existence, spanning from inception to demise,” according to the band.

Founded by brothers Torsten and Niels Kinsella, the band has once again created an exceptional collection of songs, inviting listeners to explore and interpret it in their own unique ways. »Embers« represents God Is An Astronaut’s most extensive and grandiose production to date. From the very first note to the lingering resonance of its finale, »Embers« quietly but confidently affirms their mastery of their craft.

From psych- to excellent krautrock trips, driving rhythms by drummer Lloyd Hanney and collaborations with guest musicians including Dara O’Brien, Jo Quail and Sean Coleman further enrich the album’s sonic space, incorporating elements such sitar, cello, zither, shamanic drums, bowed psaltery, chimes and tanpura.

Featuring artwork by the internationally renowned Irish artist David Rooney and mastered by Europe’s foremost mastering engineer Streaky, God Is An Astronaut achieves remarkable heights with their forthcoming progressive, psychedelic and instrumental post-rock opus, »Embers«!
