More than three months after the release of GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT’s critical acclaimed tenth studio album Ghost Tapes #10, the Irish four-piece presents a new official video for “Barren Trees”.

The song is the most emotive and haunting song on the album and it’s also the only song that includes lyrics and vocals mixed as an instrument, so they blend in with the overall sound of the song.

The additional guitar parts by Jimmy Scanlan complete the special sound design crafted on “Barren Trees”.

Inspired by the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost, “Barren Trees” reflects the overall feeling of the band in November 2019, when this piece of art was written.

Fade to darkness, frozen ground
Leaves fallen, barren trees
Snowy twilight, cold moon rising
Creaking branches, moving shadows
Where the spectres of winter are rising.“
– (Lyrics)-

Check out the official video below:

Reigning as one of the most well-known and highly critically acclaimed experimental instrumental groups out there with a respected musical legacy spanning nearly 20 years, Irish four-piece GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT just reached a career benchmark with the release of their critically acclaimed 10th studio album, Ghost Tapes #10, about three months ago.

As most vinyl formats are completely sold out, Ghost Tapes #10 will be available as a special and strictly limited Glow In The Dark format on June 25th which you can order here.
