The Astronots are an American rock band inspired by by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Alabama Shakes and Kings Of Leon.

The Astronots are spearheaded by its founding members, Niko Giaimo (Vocals/Guitar) and Allee Futterer (Vocals/Bass). The two are established musicians in their own right. Futterer has had years of cutting her musical teeth, backing some of the biggest names in the Los Angeles music scene, while Giaimo was an integral member of the scoring team behind productions such as Dexter and Dishonored II. The two come together on The Astronots, combining elements of their quintessential Los Angeles upbringing, classic rock, and west-coast cool. Now completed by guitarist Eddie Campbell, the group continues to wow audiences across the nation.

The Astronots have recently released El Dorado, their new single, an anticipation of their upcoming new album Cotati.

El Dorado showcases the band's signature sound of rawkus rock'n'roll with vibrating soundscapes and raspy vocals.

Through this album we believe it has allowed us to finally find a vision for our musical style and we hope it can connect with people in all walks of life as much as it has with us" said singer Michel "Po" Pogson about the album.

El Dorado includes the singles ForevermoreOnly YouArs Amatoria, Fire Eyes and Save Your Love. Stream the whole LP on Spotify and discover one of the most addictive and smart pop album of the year.

Drawing North

Here we are again with Drawing Northas this brilliant band from down under has just released the new single Save Your Love, the first since the band signed to Universal Music Australia.

Save Your Love is an alternative pop number that builds up to a fast paced pop dance track just in time for the refrain: a funny and addictive song that you can stream now on SoundCloud (click on the image on the left).

As previously reported, Drawing North are working on the debut album El Dorado, to be released later in the year, so stay tuned for more updates on this promising act.

Drawing North - Fire Eyes

Drawing North is a much promising alternative pop-rock band from Canberra, Australia. They've just released their new addictive single Fire Eyes: stream it now on SoundCloud clicking on the image.
"The song was written about a strong relationship and one half being burned by betrayal. The lyric and title, Fire Eyes, was taken as a reflection of the intensity of the relationship and the betrayal that followed. Being through a few tough break ups we wanted to tell a story about the intensity that surrounds cheating and betrayal" said the band about the new single.

The Australian 5-piece - Michel Pogson on vocals, Ethan Sharp on guitars, Chad Barnier on guitars, Jake Allen on bass, Drew Southwell on drums - signed in December with Universal Music Australia and are recording their debut album, El Dorado in Florida with producer James Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, The Academy Is...).
