Founded in Sheffield, UK, 65daysofstatic (abbreviated as 65dos, 65days, or just 65) is an indie Electronica Post-Rock band that focuses mostly in Instrumental tracks. They first debuted with the album The Fall of Math in 2004 and have slowly gained popularity since then. If you've watched any trailers for No Man's Sky, then you've definitely heard some of their music: they're the primary composer of its music, their songs "Debutante" and "Pacify" were used in trailers for the game (as well as a song called "Super Moon" which was composed for the game), and they headlined the "A Night Under No Man's Sky" event at PSX 2014, where they played such songs as "Retreat! Retreat!", "Install a Beak in the Heart that Clucks Time in Arabic", "Radio Protector", "Arrakis" (another track composed for No Man's Sky), "Taipei", "I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood", and "Safe Passage" as an encore (along with "Debutante", "Pacify", and "Super Moon").

We Were Troping Anyway:
- Alternate Reality Game: One was used to promote the EP The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties.
- Instrumentals: None of their songs actually have lyrics to them.
- Overly Long Name: A few of their songs and album titles go into this, like "Install a Beak in the Heart that Clucks Time in Arabic", "I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood", and The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties.
- Spoken Word in Music: Amongst others on Another Code Against the Gone, 2412, Asphalt & Trouble (featuring a monologue from Full Throttle) and Massive Star at the End of It's Burning Cycle (featuring dialogue from Wizards).
- Word Salad Title: Some of their song titles (and most of their album titles) don't make any real sense, as is the case with songs like "Install a Beak in the Heart that Clucks Time in Arabic", "I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood", and "The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties", as well as albums like The Fall of Math, The Destruction of Small Ideas, and We Were Exploding Anyway.
