Dominating the Triple J indie charts, but yet to receive formal airplay (somehow?!?) is Perth indie-poppers Astro, who have put together several great songs including the slightly more rocky ‘Time on Your Clock‘.
‘Time on Your Clock’ features a much more rock centred apporach to Astro’s music, and we are digging it. ‘Time on Your Clock’ is underpinned by a slowly progressing bass line, and further mixed up by some clever breaks and changes in tempo. The vocals are powerful, uplifting, and full of character – they just ooze swagger. The inclusion of the keys really gives ‘Time on Your Clock’ a rock odyssey feel and in many ways is reminiscent of early/good U2 – taxes included. A really well constructed song, ‘Time on Your Clock’ is the ultimate slow rock listen.
We really dig the new more rock orientated direction Astro have taken, hopefully they release more tunes like this.
