UTG ALBUM PREMIERE: Astrea Corp – ‘Paradise Oscine’

Astrea Corp Album Cover

Tucked away in the grueling depths and swamp of Southern Florida is trip-hop group Astrea Corp. Featuring members of one of Under The Gun’s favorite unsigned acts, Lavola, the band creates an aesthetic trip with their music. Today’s premiere consists of seven of the strangest, yet most sensually appealing tracks the mind can muster to absorb. It’s as though Paradise Oscine is one of those records you can sit back and get lost in for hours, mesmerized by all of the subtleties provided through its well-constructed composition.

Guitarist, bassist, and studio drummer Julian Cires had this to say about the new record:

“Sonically, Paradise Oscine is a culmination of where Astrea Corp has been and where it’s going (I became a collaborator with Carly [vocals] and Mike [production and synthesizer] a few years ago). A lot of this album’s material stemmed from late night jam sessions or sometimes just a short noise sample that we’d then build collectively (“pink flloyd” & “turquoise,” are the best examples of that). We didn’t necessarily go into this with an album or EP in sight, which I think added an ethereal diversity to the project.”
