LONG TALL JEFFERSON Drops New Single (I’M IN LOVE WITH AN) ASTRONAUT

By Moni Bell

Long Tall Jefferson is an indie folk singer hailing from Switzerland. He’s one of the founding members of a collective of musicians called Red Brick Chapel, an industrious, organised bunch who function as something of an indie record label, and pre-COVID as an events agency as well – normally putting on shows for affiliates and friends of friends.

The latest offering to drop on RBC will be Long Tall Jefferson’s full length called Cloud Folk, a tongue-in-cheek exploration of the intersections between indie folk and cloud hop / trap, currently scheduled for the 20th of November.

Last Friday, the artist gave us another sneak-peek of what we are in store for, and released a new single, a hyper-catchy, hyper-bouncy, Talking Heads-y little sing-along ditty titled (I’m In Love With An) Astronaut.

Like many of the artist’s previous songs, this one, too, deals with a love possibly, maybe partially or totally unrequited. It’s light-hearted, fun and the perfect, albeit momentary, escape from the gravity of this so-called reality. Think of it as something of a whippet, because it will hit you hard, maybe knock you out, even, and leave you lightheaded and smiling like a moron in love.
