ASTRONOMIQUE TO PLAY THE 331 CLUB ON 5/27
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.
Infusing their flavor of intergalactic dream pop with elements of dark synth-driven disco, and complimented by Fongemie’s sensual vocals, Minneapolis New Wavers Astronomique return with their second and grooviest release: Astronomique EP. The 6-track, 21-minute totally danceable record reveals a funkier and more organic sound, while retaining all the passion and honesty for which Astronomique are renowned.
Their EP release show is Friday May 27 at the 331 Club.
