Track Premiere: Young Astronaut - Chasing El Dorado


Share This Article:

'Chasing El Dorado' is the beautifully uplifting latest track from New Forest based Young Astronaut.

The band bring together a number of different indie sub genres - most prominently indie folk - giving them a real summery feel to their records. Their style, similar to that of Bear's Den, has brought them a wide cult following in the UK and China.

The first few gentle notes of soft guitar and bass introduce the song, as front-man Chris Boakes enters with his youthful vocals, taking the band into their own genre and style.

He sings of adventure and "chasing thrills", harmonising with the beat as it passes through a mid-tempo bridge, before erupting in a groovy climactic ending. 

The band take listeners on a journey with them; previously revealing that the lyrics - which were predominantly written on long bus journeys across South America - are about "making the decision to leave your home comforts, job and relationships."

It is clear throughout 'Chasing El Dorado' that their travels have influenced the ensemble heavily, and definitely for the better.

New album A Gold Frontier will be available 7th April.
