NYC's Blasteroid is equal parts ethereal and outrageous

NYC's Blasteroid is equal parts ethereal and outrageous

Many musicians - electric guitarists and drummers in particular - dream of creating an insanely explosive sound, and often look for names that can express that effort. Enter NYC trio Blasteroid, a band that keeps its moniker's promises in the 20 seconds long, truly blasting intro to their - so far - only single available for streaming, entitled 'Oaf.' We can pretty much see the three of them, in awe, while listening for the first time to the finished song through the studio monitors, high fiving each other second later. After the intro, the song settles into a more tranquil psych pop territory, with a gentle, almost childish Barrettesque melody leading to a dreamy chorus drenched in reverb. The contrast - defined by the band as "equal parts ethereal and outrageous" - has the effect to make every section more enjoyable. Now... give us more please!
