Free download from Úlfur Eldjárn's forthcoming album
According to Eldjárn, it’s an anthemic synth and strings driven track with a disco beat, dedicated to NASA's Voyager mission. "It sounds like something that could have been heard on the dancefloor of Studio 54 around the time the two Voyager space craft were launched, almost 40 years ago."
The track is released ahead of the full release of ‘The Aristókrasía Project,’ a retro-futuristic concept album about space travel, A.I., lost utopias and the future of mankind. The album reflects Úlfur’s background as a member of the legendary Apparat Organ Quartet and his work as a film and experimental composer.
Musically it fuses together the aesthetics of early synthpop with cinematic string arrangements and the distinctive hand crafted beats of Samuli Kosminen (Múm, Jónsi, Hauschka).
