Elektragaaz drops a sprawling, wild 9 minute long space epic
Elektragaaz takes a break from its current ongoing series of EPs to offer fans a massive new single, “Armadas of the Milky Way”, a nearly nine minutes space epic that both recalls an earlier era of space rock (think early Pink Floyd’s “Set the Controls of the Heart of the Sun”) and also points toward the future with a new kind of progressive indietronica, mixing classic and rock flavor with just a touch of Bitpop.
“Armadas of the Milky Way” was penned by Elektragaaz’s principal composer Poppo Redband, a young Dutch composer who also contributed the electronic core of the music. The song was further powered by an ultra-talented group of New York instrumentalists performing under the pseudonyms of Tom Elektron, Josh Firebow, Kathy Kaos, Kosmic Kate, Mat Thunder and Jas Windstorm.
The five EPs in the ongoing The Synaesthetic Picture Show series released prior to the release of “Armadas” have been greeted with a chorus of critical praise calling the EPs musical “landmarks” and describing the music as “ground breaking”. That series will come to an end with a sixth and final EP to be released this fall. In the meantime, this big, bold and adventurous single will give Elektragaaz’s growing legion of fans plenty to chew on.
