Formed less than a year ago, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is 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 this past November, heralded (and hosted) by Spin and GBH.TV as one of the hottest new bands from across the pond -- thanks to their attention-grabbing 4-track digital EP (3 songs + a remix), Around the Bend.
Music lovers responded loudly: The band has been embraced by Rolling Stone, Anthem, NYLON, GOOD, AOL and Yahoo! Music, while RCRDLBL premiered an exclusive MP3. Whitney Matheson included "Around the Bend" in her "POP CANDY" podcast for USA TODAY, and URB will feature TAGT in an upcoming issue. MTVu featured "The Sun Ain't Shining No More" video in the "Freshman Five" in early December, and the producers of "Gossip Girl" loved the band so much, they used three (!) of the band's songs in their December 1 episode. Oh, and did we mention that TAGT's song "Around the Bend" was hand-picked by Steve Jobs for use in the most recent iPod Touch commercial?
Pick up this great track - The Sun Ain't Shining No More - from this super promising young act.
