Calling All Astronauts are a London based politically charged trio that mix electro, rock, punk and post-punk into their sound, this eclectic range of influences has earned them an established fanbase in the alternative underground, this is all the more impressive when you consider that everything is done on their own terms via their own Supersonic Media imprint. Living The Dream is the band’s latest single, and the final release to be taken from their critically acclaimed 2016 album, Anti-Social Network, and the single is due for release on the 25th August 2017.

Living The Dream is dark political single that to me is what Johnny Cash would have sounded like had he been born into a different era, it has a dark electro punk delivery that encompasses the worlds of dance, industrial and punk, along with a slightly retro alternative feel from the early days of the gothic and alternative scenes of the late eighties, and unusually for a release that spreads it reach across so many disparate genres I can see Living The Dream appealing equally to fans of all of them.

The sprawling nature of Calling All Astronauts sound could be partially owed to the fact that their line up contains former members of punk and goth bands, Caffeine and Marionettes respectively, but for me Calling All Astronauts are a band that are far greater than the sum of their parts. Living The Dream is another example of just how strong an album Anti Social Network is, Calling All Astronauts latest single can be pre-ordered from iTunes, but my advice would be to invest a few more of your hard earned pennies and download the whole album instead.

Calling All Astronauts are a London based politically charged trio that mix electro, rock, post-punk and even dubstep into their sound, this eclectic range of influences has earned them an established fanbase in the alternative underground, this is all the more impressive when you consider that everything is done on their own terms via their own Supersonic Media imprint. Divisive is the bands tenth single, it is taken from their critically acclaimed 2016 album, Anti-Social Network, and will be released tomorrow, the 17th March 2017.
 
Divisive has a distinct influence from the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn and The Prodigy, along with elements of Killing Joke, Rammstein and Ministry being audible in their DNA, this is the kind of loud stampy track that is made to be played to played in alternative nightclubs at 1am when the lights are strobing at full tilt. Divisive takes the best elements from the industrial and goth scenes of the late eighties and nineties, and drags them kicking and screaming out of the bat cave and onto the dancefloor, all the while retaining a defiant voice of protest against the establishment, what more could you ask for in a shade under four minutes?
 
Divisive is yet another example of why Calling All Astronauts have become a social media phenomenon, their reputation has seen them build up a following of over half a million followers on Twitter. Calling All Astronauts are a band that wear their influences on their sleeves, but they have taken them and brought them bang up to date, Divisive is a defiant dark dance floor filler that demonstrates that Calling All Astronauts are a band that are living up to the hype.
 
Divisive, and Calling All Astronauts other releases, can be downloaded via iTunes and via their Bandcamp here
