MESKEREM MEES – ” Astronaut “

Posted: June 18, 2021 in MUSIC

When Meskerem Mees won Sound Track in 2019 and took first prize at Humo’s Rock Rally the following year, it was written in the stars that she would make it. After all, with her debut single “Joe”,  the twentysomething won all hearts for herself. She repeated that with “Seasons Shift” and after a Dutch-language snack with Tourist LeMC on “Niemandsland, the singer again focuses on a place among the stars.

Take that literally, because on “Astronaut” Meskerem imagines himself to be a spaceman. However, just as not much happens in space, “Astronaut” is also quite empty. Endlessly she repeats how she is ‘an astronaut, floating through space’, without much musical variation. The minimalist line-up of guitar and cello, normally Meskerem’s greatest asset, contributes little to the futile whole. Towards the end, the song just shoots into action, but then it’s actually too late. Yes, we are happy to hear the beautiful voice of Meskerem Mees again and yes, we are happy that her debut album will be released on November 5th.
