Supporting Californian Prog rockers – ASTRA
Astra were born in San Diego but bred in the mists of Avalon, Astra have fast become a synonym for the ethereal, the sublime, and the genuinely progressive. 2009’s The Weirding put these analog-inflected San Diego visionaries on the map, alongside the likes of co-conspirators Earthless, Diagonal and Dungen.
Think wailing guitars and dulcet harmonies thickened by Mellotrons and given hypnotic qualities by the kind of drumming that borders on the shamanic. Cinematic in scope but frequently yielding to a kind of melodic fragility that can only be the product of genuine emotion, The Black Chord’s musical ebb and flow prove Astra to be a band’s band, capable of an artistry all-too-rare among their generation, and it’s a sound to behold.
Tickets are now on sale for the concert on 6th March via www.galleybeggar.com/wordpress/gigs
Galley Beggar and psychedelic pixie rock legends Circulus are confirmed as a double bill on Wednesday 6th March at the Amersham Arms in New Cross, London.
