TRACK OF THE DAY: 'THE SHAPE YOU TAKE'
KUOM 770 AM/100.7 FM (MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA)
Local funky electronic group Astronomique stopped by the studio earlier this month for an in-studio. Their performance of “The Shape You Take” closed the set strong. Astronomique arose out of inspiration from the ‘60s-throwback psychedelic artwork of vocalist/keyboardist, Logan Andra Fongemie (Satellite Voices). Joined by Sean Hogan (The New Monarchs) on guitar/vocals and Mitch Billings on drums, the trio envisioned a soundtrack that would compliment their visual component. Namely, a nouveau approach toward New Wave synthpop, inspired by the likes of The Cure, Depeche Mode, A Flock of Seagulls, and outerspace itself.
