So we've all see the Heineken commercial called "The Entrance" where a party is taking place and the guy who we all wish we were shows up and instantly is the life of the party...bringing a guy who is wearing an eye patch an eyeball, playing guns with a large cowboy that looks like Lemmy, and ninja dancing with some Jackie Chan looking guy. But I never noticed any of this because my attention is always focused on the music playing in the background.
The band is The Asteroids Galaxy Tour and the song is called "The Golden Age". The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is a pop/rock band out of Denmark and looks to have only released one commercial album, Fruit (2009), that I can find. Their sound is unique, though I wouldn't call it something that is new. It's sort of a big band sound with a rock feel with the horns and piano and a heavy drum. The lead vocals of Mette Lindberg
Fruit is one of those albums you can put on repeat and shuffle and not get tired of listening. You should instantly recognize "The Golden Age" and others will become instant favorites. "Inner City Blues" starts off kind of slow and mellow and the breaks into a nice beat. You may even recognize "Around The Bend". It was picked up by Apple to play in one of their iPod Touch commercials in 2008.
If you're looking for some new music...different than what is playing on your boring old FM station (if you have FM, spend the extra $12/mo and get SirusXM and save your soul), check these guys out. Put them on your MP3 player, your phone, tablet, whatever, and share with your friends. This is good music and Sancheezie HIGHLY recommends The Asteroids Galaxy Tour!
