Astronaut's Waltz is a love song set in space, described by Rory Macdonald of Runrig as “a beautifully constructed example of songwriting, building to the ultimate, pay-off final line.”
And Neil McFadyen of Folk Radio UK comments: “Seylan Baxter’s cello accompanies Gerda’s incredibly versatile voice on a journey to escape earth’s gravity, and a broken heart. Gerda’s strength as a poet really shines through.”
