ASTRONOMIQUE - PERFORNING 'PRETEND WE'RE STARS'
KUOM 770 AM/100.7 FM (MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA)
Astronomique is a band from outer-space*. Described, somewhat aptly, as "space-wave" and "spacy dance music," I'm inclined to describe them as bubblegum darkwave in all the best of ways. This is what I want synthpop to sound like. Fronted by Logan Andra Fongemie (Satellite Voices) on vocals/keys and Sean Hogan (The New Monarchs) on guitar, Astronomique is making infectious, totally danceable electro-psych pop. Their debut EP, Burning Stars Fade, was released May 20th. Fongemie is a talented visual artist and Astronomique is an effective extension of her psychedelic, 1960s space-age inspired art. Make sure to check out "Pretend We're Stars" remixed by local producer Sloslylove.
