The world needs more Danish pop groups – or at least a few more who spring to mind as easily as do hip Scandinavians like The Hives or Little Dragon. And while The Asteroids Galaxy Tour don’t make it easy for themselves with that mouthful of a name, they’re at least in a position to outshine fellow countrymen Aqua, whose one-of-a-kind track ‘Barbie Girl’ cast such infamy on the charts back in 1997.

First discovered by Amy Winehouse’s management, TAGT’s live début was as a support act for the late singer. Songs from their premiere album Fruit then started finding their way onto adverts for everything from iPods to department stores, and it figures: for good or ill, the band’s sound is inherently marketable – a little bit danceable, a tiny bit funky, and very, very catchy.

It doesn’t hurt, either, that those memorable vocals are delivered by an elfin bundle of hotpants glamour: frontwoman Mette Lindberg.

Long-time friends Lindberg and producer/songwriter Lars Iversen form the group’s core, writing and recording in a home studio before adding a guitarist, drummer and a pair of horn players to the touring band. As for that band name, we hear it was the result of doubts over whether Lindberg would have sufficient appeal as a solo artist. Judge for yourself.
