Beautiful Everything by Astral Bakers

A Sonic Blend of Nostalgia and Novelty

French indie band Astral Bakers, comprised of Sage aka Ambroise Willaume, Theodora, Nico Lockhart, and Zoé Hochberg, has just dropped their latest single “Beautiful Everything,” a track that marks a significant moment in the group’s journey towards their upcoming album “The Whole Story.” With an anticipated release date of February 9th, the album promises to showcase the band’s unique sound, characterized by an engaging blend of influences ranging from Sonic Youth’s edgy guitar riffs to the emotional depth of Elliott Smith and Big Thief.

“Beautiful Everything,” released just three days ago, is a testament to Astral Bakers’ ability to balance the raw energy of live recording with a dream-like quality that resonates throughout the track. This single stands out as a harmonious convergence of the band’s diverse experiences, each member having honed their skills with artists like Woodkid and Clara Luciani. Their collective expertise in studio arrangements and live performance is palpable in this track.

The song’s upbeat tempo, reminiscent of mid-period Sonic Youth, is effortlessly complemented by warm, emotive undertones that hint at the influence of artists like Elliott Smith and Big Thief. This balance creates a sound that is both fresh and nostalgic, appealing to fans of indie rock and indie pop alike. “Beautiful Everything” captures the essence of Astral Bakers’ musical identity: a fusion of dynamic rhythms and heartfelt lyricism.

Astral Bakers, now spotlighted in Spotify’s Radar France program and set to appear at Eurosonic in January 2024, is a band on the rise. Their music is not just a revival of indie rock elements but an evolution, blending traditional tones with contemporary sensibilities. With a headlining show scheduled at La Maroquinerie in Paris on March 7th, the band is poised to make a significant impact on the indie music scene.

“Beautiful Everything” is a track that embodies the spirit of indie music: innovative, emotionally resonant, and reflective of a rich musical heritage. It’s a song that doesn’t just echo the past but speaks to the present, inviting listeners into Astral Bakers’ world of musical exploration.
