Battlestations is a band hailing from Brussels, Belgium. Battlestations play a very eclectic and original music that could be called atmospheric rock for convenience purposes. Space rock sonic-scapes create a playground for ambiental / industrial-ambient explorations, beautiful piano lines, eerie spoken samples or noises, sensible guitar playing that reminds of Robert Fripp and Steve Hackett, and even orchestral/chamber music hints. The moods developed in the process are always warm and melancholic, conveying a particular sense of redeeming aesthetic beauty. Some of the bands and artists that could be referenced to pin down a few of the music's many facets are Pink Floyd, Fripp & Eno, Mike Oldfield, Sigur Rós, Alcest, Anathema or early Porcupine Tree. Progressive electronic, shoegaze and post-rock are genres touched in passing, but overall Battlestations do not sound like any of them and have rather created a category of their own.
