Brandishing a signature sound that infuses indie-pop with neo-psychedelia, dance and retro-futuristic soul, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour never fail to produce addictive tunes that never sacrifice imagination. On Out of Frequency, they deliver yet another unforgettable anthem with “Heart Attack” with its instantly memorable melody and a caffeinated beat guaranteed to invade dance floors. The slinky “Major” will seduce you with its 70’s blaxploitation-esque horn stabs and edgy vocals that are the perfect balance of commanding and sweet. "Major" is available as a free downlaod here. The title track “Out Of Frequency” highlights the soulful side of the band with its smoky nostalgic atmosphere and  “Fantasy Friend Forever” has all the elements of an ecstatic psych-pop explosion with it’s thumpin’ beat and addictive hooks, making it nearly impossible for listeners not to get out of their seats.

The band was first put on the map when its song “Around The Bend” was featured in a popular iPod Touch ad in 2008, launching The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s career worldwide.
