Damask are an innovatively underground act from Essex, UK who have recently celebrated the release of their first single Inner City. Their sound is a concoction of Pop Rock & Funk styling, which is wonderfully produced into an enigmatic universal sound. The idea behind the sound came from band members; Duncan Haslam and Takahide George combined desire to create sweet, soulful vibes with a touch of class.
Inner City boasts the unmistakable soul jingle which introduces the track before it starts to flow with infinite possibility. I adore the darker undertones to this music, it transcends the usual cheap styling of the genre to create a dulcet sound which are resonant of bands such as The Killers, Editors and Chris Cornell.
The lyrics are as catchy as the hooks in the music, put them both together and you get an infectious melody, not too dissimilar for Daft Punk’s cult hit with Get Lucky. However the lyrics have a far Deeper Indie Rock resonance behind them thanks to the monumental vocal arrangements of the lead vocalist.

With crazy, atmospheric five star reviewed live shows and a new single out, Astronaut is clearly one of the most exciting live acts on the danish music scene at the moment.
Astronaut formed in 2013 at The Royal Academy of Music in Denmark, as lead singer and otherworldly charismatic frontman Martin Zeppelin united old and new friends in an original setup. The sound quickly turned into a vintage late 70’s sound with a modern, spacious animalistic overlay. Fueled by the vision of playing the big stages with songs like the bands old heroes from the past, the band went into several years of rehearsing and playing numerous shows in Denmark. In the summer of 2015 Astronaut played some of the big danish summer festivals – with their latest gig being at SPOT Festival 2016, closing the Limbo Stage.
Astronaut started off 2016 by recording their debut-EP, co-produced and mixed by renowned danish producer Carsten Heller (Veto, Spleen United, Nephew). The first single Supernatural is, according to the band, an exploration of a mood swing of any shape or form. Of how we perpetually change our view on ourselves and the world according to our inner state.
The band are super excited about the sound on the new tracks, and are eager to show it off to the world – already picking up interest from Germany and UK. Over the summer Astronaut will be releasing more singles and will soon be ready for the big takeoff.
