Having recently been described as "one of the discoveries of the year" by BBC Introducing in Devon, following the release of their latest 5-track EP 'Heavy Vision', 3 piece post-punk band Big Fat Astronauts are beginning to forge their own ground in the ever-growing alternative rock scene of the UK.
Formed in the Winter of 2012, the band has existed under various musical guises and seen multiple line-up changes until now, with bassist Josh Sanderson being the most recent addition. Along with the establishment of personnel and moniker comes a refined visual and aural identity – although very much still in the early stages of creative development, Stork (guitar/vocals), Sanderson (bass guitar) and Rix (drums/percussion) have found a very distinct sound within a broad range of artistic influences. Playing on the irresistible funk rhythms of the late 70s, the experimental nature of the band has adapted this into a darker, heavier and more mathematically proficient style, unique to themselves.
The band will return to the studio later in the year, with the intention for some materialisation of recording sessions to be released around the turn of the year.
