The Cosmonauts Q&A

Your name: 
The Cosmonauts.

Where are you from? 
Four piece alternative/rock from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Who else is in your band? 
Chris Bryce - Guitar/Vocal, Alan Robertson - Bass/Vocals, Claire Schiavone - Cello/Vocals and Marc Burn – Drums.

How would you describe yourselves? 
With our energetic guitar riffs, atmospheric cello and lyrics that resonate, The Cosmonauts bring the passion and excitement of a bygone era bang up to date with a heart pounding crash.

Who are your main influences musically? 
There are way too many to mention them all but here are some of our favourites! The Beatles, Small Faces, Rolling Stones, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Tim & Jeff Buckley, Jefferson Airplane, The Band, The Stooges, The Clash, and Radiohead.  

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
As a band we would love to get a recording contract, tour the world and make our living from our music! 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Releasing our debut album earlier this year has been the highlight for us! The album has received a great response from all our fans over the globe, with everyone having their own favourite track too. It's available at all major online retailers and is self titled - The Cosmonauts.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
We feel like a really lucky band, with no real moments to forget! Fingers crossed it stays that way! 

If you could choose one of your songs as an advert for your music, what would it be and why? 
We have a new song called Mr Smith which would be a great advert for The Cosmonauts. It's a little demo on our soundcloud page at the moment but we're going to get it down properly in January, It's about breaking away from the sheeple of the world to form your own ideas and views. Plus it's full of hooks, harmonies and finishes with a little bit of a jamathon! 

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask? 
We're great believers in independent music, whether it be bands, bloggers or radio stations. There's some fine music out there and it's encouraging to see so many independent people doing what they believe in.
