There's Nothing Like A Dane

This week's song is the charming, off-beat 'Golden Age,' whose piano-driven rhythm and Cyndi Lauper-ish vocals belong to Danish pop duo Asteroids Galaxy Tour, with vocals by Metter Lindberg and production/writing by Lars Inversen.

On tour, the Copenhagen-based duo becomes a sextet. Their big break came when Amy Winehouse heard their demo disc; the band's first live show was warming up for Winehouse in Copenhagen. After releasing a debut to good reviews in 2009, they hit the road with Katy Perry.

Our SOTW, 'Golden Age' was used in European TV commercials promoting the series 'Mad Men' (though I'm not sure why - the music evokes cabaret as viewed with a new wave sensibility) and hawking Heineken.

A stroll through 'The Golden Age'...

The band's debut single was 'The Sun Ain't Shining No More..'

'Around The Bend' is yet another great tune and video from the band...
