THE ASTEROIDS GALAXY TOUR
Copenhagen’s The Asteroids Galaxy Tour have been winning over audiences globally with their unique brand of cutting edge, soulful, infectious pop. Since forming in 2007, the Danish group has racked up accomplishments that include having singles featured in two global television ads, sharing the stage with superstars like Amy Winehouse & Katy Perry and a successful US tour. The band released its second album, Out Of Frequency, on January 31, 2012 via BMG Rights.
Brandishing a signature sound that infuses indie-pop with neo-psychedelia, dance and retro-futuristic soul, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour never fail to produce addictive tunes that never sacrifice imagination. They deliver yet another unforgettable anthem with “Heart Attack” with its instantly memorable melody and a caffeinated beat guaranteed to invade dance floors. The slinky “Major” will seduce you with its 70’s blaxploitation-esque horn stabs and edgy vocals that are the perfect balance of commanding and sweet. Title track “Out Of Frequency” highlights the soulful side of the band with its smoky nostalgic atmosphere and “Fantasy Friend Forever” has all the elements of an ecstatic psych-pop explosion with it’s thumpin’ beat and addictive hooks, making it nearly impossible for listeners not to get out of their seats.
The band was first put on the map when its song “Around The Bend” was featured in a popular iPod Touch ad in 2008, launching The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s career worldwide. Additional tracks from the band’s debut album Fruit also appeared on hit television shows such as Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and CSI: Miami. Most recently, The Asteroids’ single “The Golden Age” was chosen by Heineken for use in a global 2011 campaign. The commercial features more than just the song itself—it showcases frontwoman Mette Lindberg belting out the tune in her own captivating way, giving viewers a taste of what it’s like to see the high-energy band live. With their stick-in-your-head hooks and energetic stage presence, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour put on an eclectic show that is not to be missed.
Just like an amazing untouched getaway spot, Vacationer is a little bit of a secret—one that's about to be discovered. Describing their sound is like a journey in itself: starting in the band's melodic hometown of Philly, stopping off for a few days in Canada for a dose of epic pop, swinging by Malibu to soak up those gauzy '60s harmonies then jetting to Tahiti to settle in with some islandtinged rhythms. In this overloaded musical climate, Vacationer requests that you, the listener, think of the album as an audio postcard.
