God is an Astronaut - Fragile (from All is Violent, All is Bright)

God is an Astronaut are an instrumental/post-rock band from the Glen of the Downs, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. After forming in 2002, God is an Astronaut took the inspiration for its name from a quote in the movie Nightbreed.Torsten Kinsella (vocals, guitars, piano) and his brother Niels (bass and guitar) and Lloyd Hanney (drums and synths) have created fantastically broad and lush soundscapes for their listeners to explore. The songs are crammed with atmospherics, tension, melodrama and—amazingly for a band that only includes vocals as an extra instrument—emotional draw. They have released five albums so far: The End of the Beginning (2002), All is Violent, All is Bright (2005), Far from Refuge (2007), God is an Astronaut (2008) and  Age of the Fifth Sun (2010).
