ared K. Nickerson is in Seattle, Hayley Stewart is in Toronto, and together they are Dead Astronauts.
Formed in late 2011 by digital illustrator Nickerson, Stewart joined in early 2012, and since then they produced their Constellations album and launched the Dead Astronauts Project, a global wallpaper gallery of over 20 visual artists.
Minimal and magical, he has that syrupy drone, she has that lilting whisper. As one, it’s a seeping combination, a thumping transfusion. Though geographically separate, together their sound is lo-fi new wave from an alternate universe. This is a pair, heavily influenced by the 80s, whose parts bring each cohesive element to the table at different times; two parts of one, they are a careful gestalt that synthesizes.
Be forewarned that much like the thousand-pointed star that may have been the death of them, Dead Astronauts will pulverize you with light.
