For Astronauts And Satellites – ‘A Homing Light’ [Review]

coverBeyond the fuzzy opening grind of They Should Have Warned Us Years Ago, For Astronauts And Satellites’ new mini-opus drops straight into the Yellow-Magic-Orchestra-go-post-rock sublimity of title track A Homing Light. At their best, FAAS sound like a post-rock band jamming in a busy gaming arcade – and A Homing Light captures precisely that atmosphere before things take a distinctly Muse-influenced tack beyond the three-and-a-half-minute mark. Third and final track Echoing Endlessly, however, is the real top scorer here with a deliciously funky chiptuned intro, ragged but emotive swells, a thumping beat, and a surprisingly danceable body packed with twists and turns.

Overall: Another great step in the right direction from For Astronauts And Satellites. 2015 may well be their year…
