The band came together after Manley and Quinn met at Fordham University. Both Manley and Quinn share vocal and guitar duties, and enlisted longtime friends Brendan Picone (bass) and Tom McIntyre (drums) to fill out the rhythm section. Cosmonaut is currently recording with producer Kyle "Slick" Johnson (Wavves, Modest Mouse, Cymbals Eat Guitars). The band's song "Occulture" also was featured recently on Occupy This Album alongside numerous other artists (including Patti Smith, Yo La Tengo, and Mogwai).
Cosmonaut's sound has been characterized as "somewhere in between Kevin Shields and Stephen Malkmus" (Aural Wes). "Their resonant compositions are offset with clear melodies and a natural intensity," according to Fordham University's "The Observer." Weezer's videographer and unofficial fifth member, Karl Koch, has described Cosmonaut's sound as incorporating "shades of My Bloody V, early New Order, and Pavement," (Karlophone).
Josh Eppard of Coheed and Cambria is quoted as saying " Cosmonaut has found a way to embody the classic rock and roll elements that have been all but forgotten in contemporary rock while keeping intact their indie music footing. Cosmonaut is my favorite new band. Here's to the future."
Cosmonaut is currently finishing their debut ep to be released in 2013.
Adios Ghost’s debut EP was released in January 2013 on 12” vinyl and is available for streaming and download at www.adiosghost.com. The EP met with praise from a number of well-regarded music blogs, and was described as "wild and worldly", "full bodied, and impassioned" and "intensely colourful". Since the release, they’ve slowly built a following in and around Brooklyn. In September 2013, they released a new single, “Splitting Glass”, and their next one, “Counting Paces”, is coming out in Spring 2014.
