For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

Sometimes all you gotta do is give a man a synth and next thing you know you're off floating in the wisps of clouds. Anthony Ferraro, the solo man behind the name Astronauts, etc., accomplishes a similar atmosphere with the release of his debut single "Mystery Colors". The track arrives about a month before the release of his EP Supermelodic Pulp (due out September 10th). At first glance the name seems fitting; "Mystery Colors" is indeed supermelodic, cradling you in a comfortable bed of slow, mesmerizing dream pop. The organ and drum machine that backs the track almost sends you into a trance, suspending you in a vacuum of space. It demonstrates the potential Ferraro has to be a good songwriter; sometimes less is more, and it's very difficult to make that distinction. If you're interested, there's a video for "Mystery Colors" that you can view here. He also has a Bandcamp and SoundCloud that offer free downloads.
