One of the highlights from the debut Astronauts album ‘Hollow Ponds’, ‘In My Direction’ is a gorgeous, cascading slice of dark, folky pop, with Dan’s breathy vocal harmonies – and call-and-responses with his friend and collaborator Michael Cranny – floating reassuringly over an intertwining acoustic guitar flow and taut percussive backbone. As with all the best Astronauts material; it’s hooky, emotionally involving, and mildly unsettling, all at once.

‘In My Direction’ is backed with a remix of the ‘Hollow Ponds’ track ‘Everything’s A System, Everything’s A Sign’ from Kieran Mahon, a minimal/ambient composer and long-time friend of Dan’s, who creeps up silently behind the original and injects it with a swirling, insistent menace.
