Laika 06:13
My nerves are shaking as the engines fire The rockets roar as I'm getting higher Into the sky for the humankind All my life I've been roaming free Now they're going to sacrifice me For pride and honour of their motherland It's getting faster than the speed of sound higher and higher now above the ground Into the orbit and beyond the sky The air is getting too hot to breathe Senses are fading with every degree I'm never getting out of here alive
I was born in the darkest night My daddy left home when my mother died So I got raised by a lioness Way out in the wilderness She fed me raw meat from the bone A cold dark cave I called my home I hit the road by the age of ten Lived with the hobos and the traveling men I lived my life on the edge of a knife I settled down when I found a wife But she left me in the very first winter 'Cause I bit her hand every time we had dinner


Formed in 2020 as a classic three-piece band, Mos Eisley Spaceport became a duo in spring 2022. For the band members Guido and Sebastian this was both a challenge and a chance: Rethinking songs, arrangements but also their gear and live rigs was a special mission and fueled creativity in unexpected ways. The outcome of this process is an approach that's both more streamlined, but also much more playful than ever before.

Mos Eisley Spaceport is proud to release their new double single 'Laika'/'Raised by a Lioness'!
The songs were recorded entirely live in a small room, with no overdubs or additional instruments built into the production. These are exclusive bare bones single versions of two brand-new songs that showcase Mos Eisley Spaceport as a dynamic and expressive power duo in the most authentic form.

Mos Eisley Spaceport Bremen, Germany

A wormhole located in the door of their practice room keeps taking two dudes from Bremen straight to the year 1972 on a small desert planet in the outer rims of a galaxy far away.
