Press release:

After a decade between records, Miriam Clancy’s third album, Astronomy, marks her return to the musical landscape. 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 when living in New Zealand amidst writing the record, the record’s title and overarching ambience reference 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 the earth can affect us and give a sense of perspective… it’s the great equalizer.”

Astronomy has already been released stateside to critical acclaim and now it's time to bring it back home with a run of the first NZ shows in over eight years.
