"New album from Galactaron"

“Galactaron takes an interplanetary roadtrip while pumping out hearty synth and bass driven tracks that seem to fall somewhere in the realm of Gorillaz, Daft Punk and The Flaming Lips. Far too many concept albums have been nothing more than [making a theme for the sake of making a concept album], but lucky for us Galactaron has avoided that clutch and produced a genuinely good album where the concept is used as a vehicle and not a device.” - Discosalt

"Intro to Epilogue"

“...Pretty sweet, avoiding cliche electro elements and dabbling in vocoders (which for me is ALWAYS a bonus). It also has a fairly unique twist in that every word in the lyrics is in a different language, ranging from Afrikaans to Russian, while this idea sounds a bit sketchy on paper, the end result actually sounds really good, almost comparable to some tracks from Squarepusher's Shobaleader One: d'Demonstrator. ” - Ilictronix

This is Galactaron, the alien band from space, and their debut self-titled album. In their first electronic musical, drawn by radio waves, Galactaron focused in on Earth, traveling a great distance to learn about us. When they finally reached our planet, they landed their massive, red, egg-shaped ship on a frozen lake in the upper Midwest of America. The album covers the excitement of meeting Emily Wong, a Chinese-American and their first human, through the turmoil of government intervention and culture shock.

Similar in style to Fischerspooner, La Roux, and Royksopp, Galactaron takes a Gorillaz approach to music making with a virtual band and themed album that includes a story arc and diverse characters. The album features smooth beats and classic electronic sounds. The wailing guitars are paired with strong harmonies and both electronic and human vocals.

Because they’re aliens they often have trouble communicating and they will accidentally speak in multiple languages at once. They don’t have human mouths so they have to use computer assistance to help them speak. Emily Wong seems to be the only person who can understand them.

Singer has no face and no ability to express emotions. The people of his (?) world are travelers. They try desperately to learn about emotions because they do not understand them. Each person on his world earns masks that express all the emotions they’ve come to learn and understand. The oldest and greatest of their people have hundreds of masks, each with a unique expression on its face symbolizing every emotion that the wearer has learned.

Singer is curious, young, and inexperienced. He has his neutral mask and has only learned three other emotions: Sadness, Anger, and Happiness. In visiting Earth, Singer hopes to continue his education.

Emily Wong is the first person that Galactaron meets. She is attending a local university and is not really sure what she wants to do in her life. She moved to America when she was about 8 years old. Her parents are divorced and she lives with her father. She meets Galactaron while walking home one day and immediately feels a sense of duty and responsibility for them. Various governments try to get involved because they don’t know how Galactaron will react to Earth. Because Galactaron trusts Emily so much, the different nations of Earth try to coerce her into showing only the good things humans have to offer. Emily quickly becomes caught between the loyalty to her home and loyalty to her friends. It is something much larger and more trying than she has ever dealt with before.

All the members of Galactaron sincerely wish you to enjoy their album about their experiences here on Earth!
