My Milky Way Arms

What would happen if the Beach Boys were stranded in space on a spaceship made out of synthesizers? My Milky Way Arms might have an idea as they're pretty much are making the kind of music that the Space Shuttle crew takes along with them in orbit.

My Milky Way Arms EP, My Milky Way Arms is a dreamy head trip of intergalactic travel that's like post shoegazing for the nu-rave generation. The songs on My Milky Way Arms are airy, wispy, and barely there. Drenched in harmonies from the heavens each of the five songs here are lush and palatial with a mellow vibe that feels as big as the galaxy.

From the Brian Wilson inspired, "Unbearable Lightness of Being," to the nearly ambient rays of, "Sunshine," My Milky Way Arms is an absolutely fantastic record of serene spatial pop that sounds like the best record Slowdive never recorded.

Epic and as vast as the Milk Way itself, My Milky Way Arms is music for aliens created by a duo of musicians who might not just be from around these parts to begin with. Seriously short and sweet at but completely awesome stuff that will make you look towards the heavens.
