Astronauts | Shake it Loose

You know you’re onto something good when you’re supporting Toro Y Moi which is exactly what Oakland CA band Astronauts have achieved. “Shake it Loose” is the latest single from their forthcoming LP “Mind Out Wandering” out on September 18th. Shake it Loose somehow, and don’t ask me how because I can barely manage punk in my washed up Art School band, blend a unique soul-tinged vocal delivery with a psychedelic cloud of guitars and expertly paced rhythms. Often Psych bands can go the wrong way down the path. Overindulging in effects and surrendering to general weirdness may get you labeled as sonic psychedelics but it ruins what bands like Astronauts do so well which is elevate your traditional makeup of musicians to a plain of blended influence.
