Pittsburgh Music Mag Premiere: Astronomique’s intergalactic dream-pop “The Shape You Take”

Flash back to the 80’s with Astronomique’s new single, “The Shape You Take.” Mixed with intergalactic dream pop with elements of dark synth-driven disco, The Shape You Take creates an atmospheric sound that is out of this world. Please consider “The Shape Your Take” on Pittsburgh Music Mag and I would love to hear your thoughts on a possible track premiere or feature. Thank you for taking the time to listen and have a wonderful day!

Described as, “an impressive introduction to hooky celestial pop-rock that sounds a bit like Ladytron meets dreamy psychedelia meets Carl Sagan,” Astronomique’s funky bass rhythms and upbeat new wave synthpop is unlike any other.

ABOUT ASTRONOMIQUE:

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.

Receiving high acclaim in national and international music blogs, ASTRONOMIQUE’s 2014 self-released Burning Stars Fade EP saw 3 weeks on CMJ’s RPM chart, peaking at #34. Earning the band a loyal following, radio in-studio appearances, nomination for best new local act, and a headlining slot at the KNDS 96.3 annual music showcase, ASTRONOMIQUE’s debut release was aptly described by Swim Agency as “one of the more successful debut promo campaigns [we’ve] been a part of.”

Hailed by 89.3 The Current as “an impressive introduction to hooky celestial pop-rock that sounds a bit like Ladytron meets dreamy psychedelia meets Carl Sagan,” and by l’etoile Magazine as “something refreshing in a local music scene full of talented, but often similar, musical styles,” ASTRONOMIQUE are working hard to establish themselves as a unique and governing force in not only the local, but the international synthpop scene. The band is currently seeking international label interest and touring opportunities in 2016 to support the release of Astronomique EP, and to bring their distinctive sound and passionate live performance abroad.
