INDIEPOP WITH PHILOSOPHICAL DEPTH BROUGHT WITH A DOSE OF COMMON SENSE FROM THE ACHTERHOEK
Astronaut is the musical project of songwriter and amateur philosopher Pelle Bast. His songs are uncompromising and seek naivety in its best form. Grand themes such as sex, love, and the cosmos are sung about, questioned, and ridiculed with humor and lightness. The Dutch-language lyrics reflect philosophical depth, delivered with a down-to-earth Achterhoek style. This year, Astronaut was selected by Popronde and named a 3voor12 talent. Now, he is bringing his band to the stage at EKKO to present his debut album, offering a mix of vulnerable moments, energetic drums, and trumpets to surprise the audience.
