Astronomique’s latest video combines two things I love – orange sunset skylines of Minneapolis and the 80s retold as the Andrew McCarthy/Kim Cattrall classic rom-com Mannequin with a space age twist.
I saw Astronomique recently at the Bastille Day celebration at Barbette – except I think I really just saw a portion of the band. I was pleasantly surprised with how much richer the music was in the video. It’s a more melodic version of 80s new wave. I will be looking for an excuse to see them again.
