Biography

Dip a toe or two into The Asteroid Galaxy Tour’s debut album, and your mind will conjure up images of downtown Memphis in Outer Space, with a singing siren floating past in a levitating rolltop bath.
Maybe we shouldn’t crush your illusions, but the less than spectacular reality looks more like a tiny studio flat in the Danish capital Copenhagen, where Lars Iversen and Mette ... Read more in Amazon's The Asteroids Galaxy Tour Store

Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Danish Alt-Rock duo. Formed less than a year ago, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is moving at the speed of light. The band, led by Lars Iversen and Mette Lindberg, created quite a buzz when they came to New York City, heralded as one of the hottest new bands from across the pond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go ahead, have a piece of Fruit! November 8, 2009
By Nae24
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I assume, like most people, I was introduced to The Asteroids Galaxy Tour through an iPod commercial. After having the snippet of "Around The Bend" stuck in heavy rotation within my head for days on end, I decided I should check these guys out. However, at the time their album had yet to be released in the US. So I patiently waited, stalking the pages of Amazon.com until the CD finally made its debut. Well, color me pleased. I dig this album. The lead singer's voice is unique and the musical arrangements aren't your generic "Miley" beats.

Stand out tracks are as follows:

Lady Jesus
The Sun Ain't Shining No More
Push The Envelope
The Golden Age
Around The Bend
Bad Fever
Inner City Blues

This band is well worth your pocket change! Give um a shot, support a new artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm diggin' it. July 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was really surprised by this album. I wasn't sure what to think about the singer's vocals at first, as she has a very young sounding voice. Though, she comes across surprisingly soulful in some tracks, but fresh and fun, too. Another surprise on this album was it's wide range of influences. It comes across as retro and spacey, with flavors of reggae, funk, and jazz. The lyrics, too, are fun but not brainless. Overall, it's a great chill out and feel good album! I'll be watching this group for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fruit Review March 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Known for their song "Around the Bend" which is featured in iPod commercials, the band from Copenhagen, Denmark's debut album "Fruit" is characterized by exaggerated vocals, beats built from a myriad of sounds, and a rather interesting use of horns. The band, consisting of vocalist Mette Lindberg and producer Lars Iversen, have built a sound in which classic guitar riffs and drums back computer generated sound. The most interesting thing about their sound is that the technosonic touches are not jarring or grating, they seem to integrate into the sound without much friction. Many people who try to integrate both technosonic touches with classic drums and guitar do so in such a way that either side is rendered useless. In "Fruit" The Asteroids Galaxy Tour integrates the two with precision, allowing both sides to contribute to the overarching sound. Lindberg's unique voice brings the whole thing together with interesting and varied lyrics.
For me, the most interesting thing was the use of different instruments and sounds in order to create a unique sound. Throughout the album you can hear the use of computer generated sounds, synthesizers, guitars, drums, brass instruments, and I think I even heard a xylophone in there somewhere... This creates a unique sound that only they are able to muster.
"Fruit" sets the stage for the album with the opener "Lady Jesus." The song begins with a single trumpet sound, followed by drums, guitar, and vocals. As the song reaches its refrain, the computer generated sounds enter with a sound I don't think I can describe, but it fills out the sound. This is seen throughout the album where the rock sounds of the guitar and drums seem incomplete and are filled out with computer generated sounds that bring the sound full circle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatles of Tomorrow November 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album "Fruit" is nothing but pure genius delivering great rhythms and melodies that are designed to penetrate your ear and keep you coming back for more. With songs like The Golden Age and Around the Bend giving you that high energy to keep you upbeat they also decide to explore the other side of the musical galaxy through slower paced songs like Inner City Blues or Crazy. The Asteroids Galaxy Tour decides to explore the complexities of being simple in musical form. I can't wait to see how they will evolve over time.

Can't wait for you guys to come to Tampa

4.0 out of 5 stars Different, lively, and pleasing June 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
4.5 stars. This group combines solid beat, harmony, and melody with extraordinary lead vocals and innovative sound throughout. Every song on the album is pleasing and stimulating. And the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Collections like this are why people bought albums in the 60s.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Retro jazz funk & blues June 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Awesome album front to back... nice marvin gaye cover as a bonus track. Love this album, the female lead singer is great, slighty making changes to her voice through out the album giving great stylistic variety. The horns add a simple but nice touch to the album keeping it grounded while much of the album is manufactured with effects & synthasizers. The album has a ton of influence from the beatles amongst other groups new and old. check this album out well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Setting their own genre May 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amazing sound - but a bit different. Funk, blues, even a little psychodelic - with a hint of trance. Great use of horns - nice drums and bass guitar. But, the vocals are what makes these songs. If you don't like Mette's voice, you might not like the album. I, however, am fascinated by it. The hardest problem with a new sound is that your mind is constantly trying to guess when the chord changes, refrains, etc. are going to happen - and what they will be. You really have to listen to each song more than once to appreciate it. The brief clips Amazon offers can't really do any of the songs justice. Some songs, such as Push the Envelope use the first half of the song to set up the second. Others, such as Crazy, are sublime in their simplicity. Every song is different. My favorite "new sound" album since "Tragic Kingdom" by No Doubt (I know, it was technically their 3rd album - but the first I came across them). I'd put Fruit in the same break-through category as Parallel Lines and Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). I'm only disappointed that they are getting nearly no U.S. exposure - other than the Apple and Heineken commericals that use their songs. However, Heineken's "The Entrance" commerical is what spurred me to search out who was behind the commercial's music.
