Kansas City based future-folk/psych project Ready Astronaut, is the latest side endeavor of The Slowdown’s Josh Johnson. The band is readying their self-titled debut album, which builds on concepts in sound first hinted at with The Slowdown’s most recent album, 2014’s sophomore full-length Digital Gold.
Exploring gritty yet wistful themes of wanderlust and heart break, the skittering, convention bucking rhythms and smokey, hard rock guitars lend the record a genuine quality as sampled on previously released singles.
Speak Into My Good Eye now brings you the exclusive premiere of the rollicking “Purple Pill” available for streaming in full below. Check out the latest from Ready Astronaut and look for their self titled debut out next week.
