God Is an Astronaut is an Irish Post-Rock band formed in 2002. The band was founded by Neils and Torsten Kinsella, and appropriately, their sound is sometimes classified as Space Rock. It’s a five piece band with traditional rock instruments, utilizing synthesizers to augment the experimental riffs. “GIAA consider each of their albums to be a sonic ‘photograph or snapshot of who we are in that moment of time.”* The End of the Beginning is the band’s first studio album and was released under their own label. The LP progresses from what can best be described as an atmospheric chill-out and finishes with some vibrant guitar driven riffs. Fall from the Stars is one of the more upbeat tracks from the record.
