Hello, Astronaut - The Only One EP

Reviewed by: Ryan Gardner (09/25/10)
Hello, AstronautThe Only One EP
Record Label: None
Release Date: September 7, 2010


Who?

18-year-old Jordan Palmer is Hello, Astronaut, an upbeat optimist project reminiscent of This Love or even Never Shout Never and Weatherstar.


How Is It?

Hello, Astronaut’s second EP, The Only One, breeds from infectious pop melodies and catchy sentimental acoustic tunes. Evident throughout the opening “The Best She’ll Ever Get,” this EP is a quick contagious ride. After this initial taste of Palmer, “Say Goodbye” continues with a Never Shout Never feel before launching into another addictive tune, “The Only One.” The title track continues in vain of “Goodbye” while “When She Leaves” adds a nice acoustic stripped-down touch to the EP. Exemplifying Hello, Astronaut’s softer side, this penultimate track stands out most amongst these songs, as Palmer’s vocals simply shine. Closer “So Unpredictable” begins with a catchy guitar melody picking the pace up. This final track ends The Only One appropriately – it’s another heartfelt tune proving Palmer’s abilities to tell a love story.

While The Only One may be marked as unoriginal, Palmer is definitely able to bring a piece of his soul into each track, making each song slightly more diverse than the preceding track. His lyrics need work, but the kid’s vocals unquestionably work well amid his sound. Just fresh out of high school, the future is undoubtedly gleaming with possibilities for Hello, Astronaut.
