Track of the Day: Astronauts — Skydive
“Skydive” is somber tune that begins with a hypnotic guitar line, before delicate drums and bass lay down the foundation for Carney’s dreamy, nonchalant lyrics and harmonies. The tune builds with the welcomed addition of cello and a few electronic blips, but never veers far from its laid-back psych/laurel canyon roots. For me, “Skydive” is a headphone track, so just put it on, turn it up and let it take you away for a few moments.
“Skydive” will be a part of Astronauts upcoming album Hollow Ponds. No word on a release date, but I’ll keep you updated.
