I haven’t posted about this band yet, but it’s not like this LIFT + The Band Mom co-venture has needed the help.
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are some Danish popsters who are getting ready to take over the world. When I saw them in November at a swanky hotel party, the house was PACKED with beautiful people (I almost didn’t even get in thanks to my flip flops – true story). Aside from their fun live shows or hearing them blowing up the college radio airwaves, you’ll probably recognize their song “Around the Bend” from an ipod commercial that aired last year.
THE ASTEROIDS GALAXY TOUR
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are Lars Iversen and Mette Lindberg. Live, the band grow to a six-piece featuring Mads Brinch Nielsen (guitar, keys), Rasmus Valldorf (drums) and horn section, Miloud Carl Sabri (trumpet) and Svend Meinild (sax).
The debut album ‘Fruit’ is out now on Small Giants Records.
“superb jangly pop… the best Danish export since bacon.” 8/10 – NME
RIYL: Santigold, Caesars, Beck, iPod commercials
Start With: 7, 1, 10 FCC CLEAN
The album’s been on the CMJ Top 200 chart for 7 weeks now, plus scoring #17 Most Added (on the Top 20 Adds chart) in its add week. It peaked (twice!) at #67, and even hit #80 this last week after a 5-week no-charting holiday break AFTER its successful campaign was assumed to have come to a close. Like I said you guys. KILLING IT!
