Advancements in technology, our current understanding of our place in the universe and our ability to reach out into space would not be possible were it not for the minds of a select few individuals. People such as Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking all formulated abstract concepts which were not readily accepted by the established scientists of their day. 'Abstract Concepts' by Stupid Cosmonaut explores this notion.

"With ‘Abstract Concepts‘, Stupid Cosmonaut triumph in putting the Hawkwind into Hawking. This is an EP pregnant with suggestion, meteor shower shot through, with star gazing contemplation, an ambient drone tour de force" Chromaticism

" Their sound permeates the outer reaches of ambient psych-rock whilst it’s inner core is full of dark, atmospheric synth swells, beautifully produced percussion and swathes of minimalistic drones that collectively create music to immerse your entire being into, until you float away on sonic ripples of shimmering ambience" Primal Radio

""If ever there was a soundtrack to the contemplation of man's achievements and his place in the grand scheme of things, then it's this. The atmospheres it conjures are evocative and inspiring and at times it is sublime. There are nods to the pioneers of electronica, from the kosmische legends to the aforementioned Cabaret Voltaire but 'Abstract Concepts' has a personality of its own. A wonderful slice of drone-driven class" Dayz of Purple and Orange

"Built with the same inherent spirit of celestial exploration and abstract discovery of the great thinkers such Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking, ‘Abstract Concepts’ infuses flickering ideas and revolutionary theories into a creative space, offering a musical journey that is deeply involving and brilliantly realised" Anthem Reviews
