Joel Compass – Astronaut

The 20 year old Londoner’s debut track “Back To Me” had over 30,000 SoundCloud plays and 150,000 YouTube views in just one week, getting radio play from tastemaker DJ’s on BBC Radio 1, a 1 Xtra playlisting and attracting coverage on Hypebeast, Clash, The Hunger and The Guardian to name a few. Joel has now released his 4-track debut EP, “Astronaut”, via Black Butter. He may be signed to a particularly British label, but aesthetically Joel has more in common with American singers like Miguel, Frank Ocean, The Weekend, D’Angelo and Maxwell. There’s no ‘popping bottles in the club’ or generic Euro Dance bangers, this is music with heart, emotion and a vulnerability rarely seen in someone so young. At turns, dark and disturbing, at others boldly witty and markedly candid, this is indie R&B at its best.

Joel Compass – Astronaut Lyrics:
Living like an astronaut
Outta Space you can see
hasn’t happened how I thought
But at least I see clearly

Out of mind I don’t know why
I try to freeze frame as my hands move slow
Out of my mind I don’t know why
I try to freeze frame as my mind lets go
Was on my way to love you
I was passing through you let me cruise oh
And my thinking of you girl
It’s your truth I held on to
And now I float above you
While I’m in the sex I think of you
It’s the way I keep it close until the day I
Get home [x5]

Living like an astronaut
Outta space you can see
Hasn’t happened how I thought
But at least I see clearly

Get out of my mind I don’t know why
Try to freeze frame as my hands move slow
Outta my mind I don’t know why
Trying to freeze frame as my mind lets go
Was on my way to love you
I was passing through you let me cruise
I’m thinking of you girl
It’s your truth I held on to
And now I float above you
While I’m in the sex I think of you
It’s the way I keep you close
Until the day I get home

I’m on my way
Don’t move so fast
Don’t move so fast
I said I’m on my way home
Don’t move so fast
Don’t move so fast

Was on my way to love you
I was passing through you let me cruise
I’m thinking of you girl
It’s the truth I held onto
And now I float above you
While I’m in the sex it’ I think of you
Cause it’s the way I keep her close.
