Comets in their essence are big snowballs of gathered bits and pieces of space rubble and gases, all rolled into one. When their orbit nears the sun, they heat up and all those gases and dust burn up, causing a spectacular cosmic display.
Autumn Comets, the Madrid-based band, took a year-long hiatus at the peak of their success last year and planned a new approach to their sound. Their new album doesn’t disappoint, proving that the closer they are to the sun, the brighter the flame.
Blending a mix of predominantly English lyrics with a pair of Spanish tracks for good measure, their latest album We Are Here/You Are Not (2015) is a sweet blend of instrumentals, electronic synths and wispy lyrics; slightly reminiscent of Wild Nothing. Autumn Comets are carving their own way, and one to keep an eye on.
