Who is Who
Astrasonic is a Belgian indie electro/coldwave band with a bunch of guitars and a psychedelic touch. With Seb on bass and Rapha Mantra on drums, keyboard and backing vocals, they have been friends for a long time and decided to make a new project. JC MO joined the band in 2017 as lead vocalist.
It is difficult to describe the style or match it with any particular band… my answer is 90s indie rock with a hint of shoegaze, coldwave, maybe a pinch of grunge. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower but always involving synths and always melancholic. The lyrics will take you to the stratosphere.
Definitely “Astrasonic”. Personally I prefer the slower, dreamy part of the band and the evocating songtext. On the other hand “I Will Wait” shows another side of the band sliding in a more punk and grunge direction.
To sum it up
Good Belgian indie rock with English lyrics and sympathetic synths.
When to listen to it
When you feel daydreamy and when they have a gig. The live show is very well done, so do not miss it.
