GA SEATING / ALL AGES
The Comet is Coming is the soundtrack to an imagined apocalypse.
In the aftermath of widespread sonic destruction what sounds remain? Who will lead the survivors to new sound worlds? Who will chart the new frontier?
In a warehouse somewhere in London 2013 a meeting would take place between three musical cosmonauts. They would pool their energies to build a vessel powerful enough to transport any party into outer space.
The Comet is Coming to destroy illusions. It will manifest new realities, perceptions, levels of awareness and abilities to coexist. It is a musical expression forged in the deep mystery. It is the overcoming of fear, the embracing of chaos, the peripheral sight that we might summon the fire.
Through the transcendent experience of music we reconnect with the energy of the Lifeforce in hope of manifesting higher realities in new constructs. Because the end is only really the beginning.
“Powered by Arkestral cosmic forces, The Comet Is Coming. Brace for impact” The Guardian
“The Comet Is Coming embraces stargazing psychedelia on its maiden voyage, outfitting spacey synth arrangements with taut saxophone riffs that spiral off into the inky abyss” Time Out, New York
