The art of music and song lies in the fact that it means one thing to the singer and another to those listening to that song, these were Masked Wolf’s words about the song.
“Astronaut in the Ocean” starts with a spy-movie guitar ringing out three notes, there is the sound of a drone in the background which is getting busier, then there is silence, a commanding voice that calls out a question “What you know about rolling down in the deep?”, then the song actually begins.
Truth to be told,”Astronaut in the Ocean” is easily Masked Wolf’s best song, as the song is packed with all his strengths.
Though the intro of the song is about 17 seconds long, it is enough to build up that energy needed for this kind of song.
This song is quite catchy, if you hear it once, you’ll want to hear it again. No wonder it became so famous, thanks to TikTok.
