Astronaute is Myrthe Luyten's solo project and this is what Radio 1 (Vi.be on Air) said about her :
'Myrthe Luyten has an intriguing voice. Perhaps this is due to the fact that she sings lower than most other singers. Or maybe it is simply because Myrthe can, just with an acoustic guitar, fill a room with a gentle but distinct lyric so that the listener realizes they have just heard something very special.'
Astronaute brings with great ease a mixture of folk, pop and indie and is truly a well crafted singer-songwriter.
You can hear for yourself on her debut EP "Myriad", which is released as a free download on Zealdigital, or Zealrecords' hatchery. "Myriad" has been produced by Christophe Vandewoude (member of Isbells and Pilod) and Bob Hermans and includes the following musicians :

- Stijn Persoons (drums, also playing in Mad About Mountains)
- Gerd Van Mulders (trumpet, also playing in Isbells, Marble Sounds, Headphone)
