“Really interesting…a sound of their own”
– LAUREN LAVERNE (BBC 6MUSIC)
26th February brings the “In Memory” EP by Space Captain, unveiling four new pieces to add to the immersive “Two” – the upfront track whose release on 4th December announced a bold new sound from the young Brooklyn outfit. Picked as Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music MPfree, the attention-grabbing nugget also gained support including a Clash premiere and the Gigslutz New Band of the Week accolade, and has had more than 10K Soundcloud plays to date.
In a period of open-minded experimentation, via live shows and studio jams, Space Captain have alighted on a progressive fusion of R&B and psychedelic rock with tentacles spinning out into soul, hip hop, electronica and noise. The “In Memory” EP finds singer/lyricist Maralisa Simmons-Cook exploring darker, more personal subjects; with themes of mourning, the life cycle, lightness verses darkness, death and rebirth, each song is a record of a true recent event.
