Former Astronauts is Adrian Kayvin (Vocals / Guitar), Georwill Perez (Drums) and Rafael Moises (Bass) an indie-rock band from Aguadilla in Puerto Rico.
Singing in both Spanish and English Former Astronauts bring a breezy spring to the step of indie rock as the music combines influences of the local scene and a more international rock base. Originally starting back in 2011 as a high school band called Heavy Smiles they soon realised they had more to offer than just an excuse to cut class, becoming Former Astronauts and took the music to a wider audience, where they are well received locally.
Essentially music you just can’t help tapping your feet whilst swaying your shoulders and hips, there is a pleasing depth to the stringed instruments which gives the resulting out-put a solidity and seriousness which delights the ears.
Their first studio release, the five track plus bonus Uplifting Downers is set for launch on the 24th July. Having had the opportunity to take a listen I can recommend adding it to your playlist and with fortune will find Former Astronauts a wider audience.
