God Is an Astronaut is an Irish post-rock band from the County Wicklow, formed in 2002 by Niels and Torsten Kinsella. Their style employs elements of electronic music, krautrock, and space rock, reminiscent of Tangerine Dream.
On March 20th 2015 “God Is An Astronaut” announced details of their 8th album to coincide with the Solar Eclipse across Europe. “Helios | Erebus” will be the bands heaviest release yet, capturing fully the bands intensity live while retaining the dark ambient passages the band are known for.
The album concept is Light vs. Dark and there are many palettes of both to be found on this 8 track album. The album was released on June 21st the longest day of the year to continue the theme of Light vs. Dark.
