Hi and welcome to Alternative Airwaves – I’m your host Steve, bringing you the best in Creative Commons music. This is the Weekly Airwave: one track with some information about the song or the artist.
This week’s track: Astronauts by Parker. Here’s a description of the artist and the track from Jamendo.com:
Parker is a band from Miami, Florida, comprising of Reed F. Gaines and Carter Vail. The pair met at the Frost School of Music in 2015 and began making music later that year. Parker released their eponymous EP in April of 2018, featuring Lo-Fi indie music with a nod towards Alt-Country. Parker will be releasing their next single, ‘Astronauts’ on November 16th under Dreamtime Palace, with an EP to follow in early 2019.
Astronauts is a futuristic synth song about being stuck on the moon. Featuring high falsetto voices & the warbling sounds of the MICROKORG, ‘Astronauts’ is a love song about missing Earth and the isolation of space.
If you’re wondering, the MICROKORG is a synth from Korg released in 2002, and still in production today. Listen for it as you take in Parker’s “Astronauts”. Be sure to check out alternative airwaves dot com for more podcasts and music reviews. See you next time.
