Symphonic Rockers GALASPHERE 347, whose self-titled debut full-length album is due to hit the streets on Karisma Records on the 20th July, have today released a video from the album.
The video, by Stephen Bennett, is titled “The Voice of Beauty Drowned Part I”. It is, as the band explains: “A song of longing and loss”, and forms a part of the opening track from the album.

Formed in 2018 GALASPHERE 347 is an Anglo-Scandinavian collaboration from members of HENRY FOOL, WHITE WILLOW and WESERBERGLAND. Its lineup of Stephen James Bennett on vocals, keyboards and guitars, Ketil Vestrum Einarsen on keyboards, programming and flute, Jacob Holm-Lupo on guitar and bass, and Mattias Olsson on drums, keyboards and guitars, incorporates the technical spectacle of progressive rock, with the distorted insistence of Krautrock, via the intimacy of the singer-songwriter’s oeuvre.
For their debut album, which is composed of three long-form pieces, GALASPHERE 347 have produced a work that is on an epic, widescreen, scale. It is replete with a powerful and dynamic drum sound that intertwines itself with liquid bass lines, grinding guitars, mellifluous flute and lush analogue keyboards, the whole of which is topped off by passionate vocals.
GALASPHERE 347 recently had this to say about it: “Our debut album is like a progressive rock cruise in outer space—with Stephen James Bennett at the helm. An amalgamation of the four band members’ collective musical past, stewed together in an intergalactic recording studio”.
Mixed by Jacob at Dude Ranch Studios, Sandøya, Norway and mastered by Andy Jackson, best known for his work with PINK FLOYD, and with artwork by Jarrod Gosling, tracklisting for the album is as follows:
1. The Voice of Beauty Drowned
2. The Fallen Angel
3. Barbarella’s Lover
The album will be available in CD, 12″ Gatefold LP and digital formats and is now available to pre-order from the following:
