ASTRONAUT originates from the greek words àstron and nautes, which translates into 'star sailor'. This seemed like the perfect name for the newly formed band, which in spite of their Danish humility, has got a flamboyant and extravagant radiation, impossible to ignore.
With crazy, atmospheric live shows ASTRONAUT quickly built a reputation for delivering extraordinary and uplifting experiences, which led to radio show host Carsten Holm hailing them as being: "Brave, red draped representatives of the romantic part of rock."
In 2017 the band started an ongoing recording process in New York and London with American producer Claudius Mittendorfer (Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, Johnny Marr, Arctic Monkeys). After releasing the two singles “No Place for Lovers” and “Under the Ocean” ASTRONAUT started writing their debut album “Silence One”.
The album shows ASTRONAUT’s capability of mixing a vintage sound with modern songwriting. Consisting of songs both from the band’s early days and newly written material, the album is a rare mix of the 70’s love pop and dark, space-noir ballads.
