The Earth & Beyond (2019)


The Earth and Beyond is the second album from musician and producer Conor Strachan which blends elements of Space Rock, Alternative and Psychedelia into his own symphonic style.

The album conceptualises the story of a Cosmonaut who finds his true love on earth but comes into conflict when he is called up to take part on a one man space mission into the unknown. External events conspire to sabotage the mission and he is ultimately pulled back towards Earth, where his fate is left uncertain.

The album was recorded between 2016-2018 at Conor’s home studio and the Tony Visconti Studio in London. A host of musicians feature throughout the album with songs utilising a mixture of traditional band instruments, orchestral instruments and electronic analogue synthesizers
