Descending upon the scene much like a rogue comet with stealthy quickness, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour was formed in Copenhagen, Denmark. Although categorized as an alternative pop band, their mojo is much more complex. The group is comprised mainly of a duo consisting vocalist Mette Lindberg and producer Lars Iversen but, when performing live, they expand to a six piece band that showcases a horn section. If that isn't dapper old school I don’t know what is.
Their freshman album Fruit dropped nationwide on October 26, 2009 (earlier for the lucky folk in Europe) and is gaining popularity quickly amongst those in the know. Their opus is seductive and their lyrics profound. Mette exudes a raw sexiness that sets the precedent for the entire band. This ethereal, indie princess is our generation's Grace Slick. She wails, she croons, she serenades, a true femme fatale of the music scene.
The group provides a beautiful bounty of tunage developing their own style of music. All of the tracks are top drawer and worth more than just a superficial listen. Some of their trumps include “Push the Envelope”, “Bad Fever”, “The Sun Ain't Shining Anymore” and “The Golden Age”. They even tackle the Marvin Gaye classic “Inner City Blues”.
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour emphasizes the here, now and beyond. A naturalistic current is captured through their exact and descriptive prose. Boasting well balanced, measured, composed and intelligible music, they are the soundtrack to the life of the spirit and its abstract values.
