The Asteroids Galaxy Tour Excel At Interstellar Funkified Pop

Take the bombast of the best funk bands and the crystalline sweet vocals of disco divas, round it out with hooks geared for both the dance floor and pop radio, and you’ve got the unstoppable debut from Denmark’s [lastfm]The Asteroids Galaxy Tour[/lastfm].

Stream “Heart Attack” off the debut album Out Of Frequency below:

Though Out Of Frequency is the band’s first full-length, the five-piece already have quite the resume. [lastfm]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm] heard the band and immediately invited them to open her Copenhagen date; Apple and Henieken both featured the band’s music on commercials; they even supported [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm] on her 2009 European tour. Pop connoisseurs should count the flags – [lastfm]The Asteroids Galaxy Tour[/lastfm] are on the path to worldwide domination.

Largely the product of producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Lars Iverson and vocalist Mette Lindberg, the fourteen tracks on Frequency effuse charm and party vibes. The horn section warms Mette’s chipmunk vocals into far more pleasant experience than you might think; [lastfm]Little Dragon[/lastfm] fans take note! “Dollars In The Night” could back a legend like [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] with its explosive funk horn section, a style used so effectively throughout the record: both parts of “Gold Rush” are instant party-starters, “Major” and “Theme From 45 Eugenia” imbue horns as part and parcel to the band’s inimitable, interstellar swag, an impressive vibe that never distills throughout the record.
