No Past No Future is the debut album of psychedelic, space-pop artist Spacemoth. As Spacemoth's Maryam Qudus was hard at work in her recording studio, synthesizers piled high, she found her mind in another place. Attempting to understand her position in the universe, the relationships that hold her together, and the climate crisis unfolding around her, she realized ruminating over these concerns was paradoxically taking her away from precious experiences. No Past No Future is the reckoning point between nostalgia and nihilism: the struggle to hang on to a moment as it warps in time. The bulk of performance on Spacemoth songs comes from Qudus herself, who favors vintage synths alongside fluttering tape manipulations to create cosmic, lush soundbeds. The result is a record rich in intergalactic, avant-pop, radiating in astonishment at the emotional landscape humans contain within ourselves, and in wonder at the preciousness of our time on earth.
