Space March is the project of Australian singer/songwriter/producer/artist – Craig Simmons. The music of Space March can be described as melodic,
layered, dreamy electropop.The debut self-titled Space March album was released in Australia in 2003 and picked-up by synthpop label, Ninthwave
Records as a US import release in 2004. Space March appeared in the Chicago Reader's 2004 year-end newspaper feature – The Best Music of 2004
with Music Critic, Ann Sterzinger, ranking the release number one in her top ten albums for that year. Sterzinger's top vote was similarly cast
in The Village Voice Pazz Jop poll for 2004. The debut Space March album was quite organic sounding for a synthpop album, combining Beatlesque
Britpop and psychedelic electronics, with the Chicago Reader describing the album as mixing "The Magnetic Fields, Erasure, and a dollop of Momus".
Ninthwave Records digitally released the follow-up Space March album Without This You Can Never Change in 2006. The following year, the labels
Ninthwave Records and Death By Karaoke released a remixed and repackaged version of the album both digitally and on CD.Without This You Can Never
Change was more electro orientated than the debut but still retained a melodic, pop sensibility.
The third Space March album, Monumental, was released in September 2011. For this album, Simmons collaborated with multi-platinum record
producer/mixer Mark Saunders whose production credits include: Erasure Wild! The Cure Wish; Tricky Maxinquaye; A-ha Foot Of The Mountain. Monumental
exhibited strong references to early 80s synthpop production which was noted in some reviews favourably.
Hark Records released the fourth Space March album, Mountain King, in February 2013. The title track incorporates the melodic theme from “In The
Hall Of The Mountain King” by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, written for the play, Peer Gynt in 1874-76.
Prior to Space March, Simmons was the founding member of the synthpop duo, ElectroSquad which released two albums: Espionage (2000) and Operation: k
(2001) on Hark Records.
