Bio

Born in a 1950’s college apartment, ‘About Everything’ is the summer soaked lead single from Corduroy Spaceship’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Corduroy Spaceship & The Custard Gumboot’. Smooth slide lines and love child inspired lyrics set a summery scene before plunging you into the fuzzed out guitar and bass riffs of the following four tracks.

Delicate vocal melodies, reverb drenched guitars and crunchy drum recordings are the work of Torsten Gustavsson, whom established Corduroy Spaceship in 2018 after being gifted a vintage green corduroy shirt by close friend and fellow member of KxCS.

Written, recorded, mixed and mastered in bedrooms across Australia, ‘Corduroy Spaceship & The Custard Gumboot’ is Torsten’s first release under Corduroy Spaceship, exploring his love for modern psychedelia and psych pop, following in the footsteps of seminal Australian acts such as Pond and Methyl Ethel.



Yet to play a show Corduroy Spaceship is in its infancy, but with writing and recording for a follow up record already underway a permanent spot in the Australian music scene is imminent.

Glad to know I can fly away on a corduroy spaceship anytime I want now! This is very cool.

Retro hippy sounds that calms your sole like a gentle summer sea breeze as it caresses the curtains through an open window. Hazy days of chasing an angel with a daisy chain halo over the floral fields to a place even time lays down to be still for.
