Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin was a Soviet cosmonaut who became the first human in space and to fly in orbit around the Earth in 1961. Many years later appropriately enough there is a heavy Instrumental Space Rock/psychedelic band from Sweden who calls themselves Yuri Gagarin. At the end of January the band will release their new album Outskirts Of Reality. That album is their third and comes five years after the album At The Center Of All Infinity. The title track Outskirts Of Reality,
Yuri Gagarin is inspired by Hawkwind but also very experimental and adding many exciting soundscapes and a burst of ideas, but most often melodic and audible on their own terms. The music
from Yuri Gagarin is almost cinematic and with a great sense for melody and a melting pot for heavy psychedelic space rock and even stoner and whatever gender the band want to explore. Even without lyrics the songs have small fascinating and intriguing details creating a human feeling.
On The Outskirts Of Reality Yuri Gagarin present five new songs! There are no lyrics, but still the songs are with the entire human feelings part lying in the details, as if stuck in a never-ending spacetime continuum loop, trying to fabricate small changes each time, looking for a hole leading to eternity.
