The Dane Event

This week's song is the charming, off-beat gourmet bubble gum that is 'Mafia.'   Its delightful synth riffs 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.

There's no video for our SOTW, but there's an excellent psychedelic video for the group's current single, 'Heart Attack.'   I guess I could have chosen this song for SOTW, but I like 'Mafia' a smidgin better.   You be the judge....

There's no video for 'Mafia' but you can listen to it while admiring the group's groovy cover art... : - )

Here's the group live at Le Figaro in France performing 'Out of Frequency,' which I like even better acoustic than I do on the album:

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...
