I have a pretty curious taste when it comes to music, always trying to taste new, inventive styles, sadly, most soundscapes have already been trampled on before. However, I can say with confidence that Celestial Navigation’s sound is completely organic.
The Alternative Seattle trio create blissfully avant-garde music that could be described as Folkish due to the prominence of the violin, but with the added Jazz influence Celestial Navigation are completely in a league of their own. The slightly polyphonic cacophonies have Neo-Classical undertone through the pensive keying, the violin cuts straights through the piano bringing Celestial Navigations sound to an even higher plateau than most artists could ever dream of reaching.
If you’re a fan of Amanda Palmer, Emilie Autumn, Tori Amos, Bjork or Evelyn Evelyn you’ll love Celestial Navigations, infectiously enthralling sound.
