Calling All Astronauts: Winter Of Discontent

Naming your new single after the Winter of Discontent says a lot about the political views of London based three-piece Calling All Astronauts. In 1979 the UK faced a depression not unlike the current one. The song is a dark eclectro pop assault, with hints of The Cult, A Place To Bury Strangers and the Sisters of Mercy. Desolate but not disparate they provided a song for the victims of the economic breakdown. No answers are provided, but the anger is very real.
