Life On Planet 9 - Higher

Album number 3 for Life On Planet 9, the pseudonym for experimental releases used by Pete Murray and Neil Godfrey of American hard rock band Lo-Pro.

While the band's first album Bittersweet was an acoustic escape from the duo's other heavy projects, distorted guitars crept back into their second album The Theory of Everything and are now very much a part of this third album titled Higher.

Higher was independently released last January 31; it was produced, as the previous ones, by Pete Murray and is an excellent electronic rock/dream pop album that fans of Massive Attack, U2, M83, 30 Seconds To Mars, Atticus Fault, Porcupine Tree, Peter Gabriel and Marillion simply can't miss.

From the ethereal guitar/synth scape of the opening track Wake Up to the characteristic wall of guitars in Go, from the soulful catchiness of the single All Your Words (imagine Simple Minds hybridize with Massive Attack) to the anthemic chorus of Last Summer, the new album marks an exciting union of Murray and Godfrey's classic sound with the new frontier that is Life On Planet 9.
