Planetariet is a post-rock band from Umeå, Sweden, rooted in a shared fascination with space. For over ten years, soundscapes and melodies have painted pictures of space and its phenomena. With the latest album ’Saknas’ released last autumn, Planetariet has found something that is distinctly theirs.
Looking inwards instead of outwards, ’Saknas’ tells the story of an astronaut who loses contact with Earth and drifts alone into empty infinity. The planetarium finds new expressions and explores the emotions that involuntary isolation brings. Loneliness, ego death and nostalgia.
