The Golden Age
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour are Danes dedicated to taking pop Technicolor. Watch the video for 'The Golden Age' recorded live at one of their recent gigs in Copenhagen. The Asteroids Galaxy Tour's music is funky and features old soul to shake its booty to, horn stabs and lazy beats.
Formed less than a year ago, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour's debut gig saw them support Amy Winehouse at the biggest venue in their native Copenhagen, at the request of the British singer's management. In London, a demo found its way to David Enthoven and Tim Clark, who have managed the careers of T-Rex, Roxy Music and Robbie Williams. Within half an hour of hearing it, Enthoven was on the phone to band founder Lars Iversen. Within days, he was on his way to Copenhagen to thrash out a deal.
Lars, who composes most of the music and plays bass, spent a long time planning the sound. In summer 2007, Lars met up with former band mate and singer Mette to play her some demos. She went home with a CD and returned the day after with lots of ideas of her own. The pair immediately set to work, spending last summer practically living, recording, eating, composing and sleeping in Lars's self-built studio in his one room flat in Copenhagen. Every night after a hard day's work, they would end up drunk on Lars's balcony until early morning. They were on a constant high, but at the same time slowly building a repertoire and a signature sound of their own.
