Astro Children could easily be summed up as dream pop, but yet, they are somehow so much more than just that. I like to think of these songs as being a somewhat more controlled version of a band like Deerhoof. They also have some heavier punk qualities which remind me of a band such as Puffy AmiYumi and/or Cibo Matto.
This also has some undertones of Polly Scattergood mixed in, as does most everything I hear these days, and then it has a touch of Be Your Own Pet for that extra bop. Great stuff here, and you should be blasting it like the missiles out of Astro Boy’s butt.
