Ahhh, synthpop. As most of you know, if you visit my blog a lot, I'm a total synth junkie. I literally cannot get enough of it so whenever I hear a new band, I just have to share the wealth with you guys! Today I'm featuring a band out of Boston, MA called Bearstronaut. Let's get to know them!
I found out about Bearstronaut through another favorite band of mine, Gentlemen Hall. I gave them a listen on Soundcloud and fell in love. Formed in 2007, Bearstronaut has played all over New England and earned the 2008 Boston Music Award for "College Band of the Year." In 2010, they were nominated for the Boston Phoenix's Best Music Poll in the "New Act", and in 2011, after a lineup change, they were nominated in the "Best Electronic Act" and "Song of the Year" categories.
Bearstronaut will be releasing an EP titled Paradice this month! Check out the lead single, "Passenger Side."
