• Miriam Clancy • Astronomy September 27

New York-based New Zealander Miriam Clancy returns with Astronomy.

After a decade between records, Clancy’s upcoming third album, Astronomy, is her first official full-length album stateside, but for longtime fans, Astronomy is a reintroduction and a reinvention. Its ten songs represent a cathartic fork in the road borne out of existential crisis and the new territory is evident. Crafted over a couple of years in New York City with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Astronomy is laden with swooning electric guitars, Wurlitzers, early 90’s drum machines and analogue synths.

Inspired by time spent on Great Barrier Island in New Zealand amidst writing the record, the record’s title and overarching ambience references the island’s unparalleled view of the stars as a Dark Sky Sanctuary. “It would wrap around you and lift you into the cosmos,” Clancy adds. “It’s amazing how something so far from earth can affect us and give a sense of perspective… it’s the great equalizer.”
