Walter Astral is already a big deal in France, but practically unknown in this country. We’d like to change that: Walter Astral is an astronomer who roams through parallel universes and dives into wormholes – at least according to Tristan Thomas and Tino Gellis, the musicians hiding behind this pseudonym. Their output straddles the intersection between psychedelic pop and acid techno music. Tristan’s bass and drum machines merge with Tino’s vintage guitar and a banjo so old, it sounds like a saz. Both driven by a love for the absurd, they intertwine their divergent grooves to create a sort of mystical trance. On their first EP »Hyperdruide«, each song captures an element of nature and reflects on the metaphysical questions of human existence: birth, death, creativity and love. A transcendental journey!
