"Party with Astronauts Really Fly in their “Growing Pains” video"

We find Philly pop hip-hip group Astronauts Really Fly in a dark, dance-party equipped basement in their new video “Growing Pains.” With vocals alternating between singer Andrew Meoray and rapper Mont Brown, the song gives an unique perspective on the conflicted emotions felt when growing up. The best part of the video comes when a saxophone interrupts an abrupt silence; in the midst of all the excitement, the wistful solo really captures the bittersweet emotion of growing up.

Of course, in the genre-blending world of ARF, a saxophone solo is not unexpected. Previously ARF had released videos for other singles, “Wrong” (featured on MTV 2) and “Soul”. The songs are off of their debut album F.L.I.G.H.T., due out July 11th. The band will be playing July 11th at The TLA as a part of the Kickback Live Concert. Get more information on the show here. Watch the video for “Growing Pains” below. - The Key WXPN


Still working on that hot first release.



Philadelphia's own, The Astronauts Band, is stretching the musical mold and becoming a powerhouse through the arts. This band created of young, talented musicians is spearheaded by lead MC, Mont Brown whose vision was to create a musical force that heightened the limits of achievement. Alongside his band mates, Pace-O Beats (vocalist/producer), Andrew Meoray (vocalist/producer), Joey Stix (drummer), Art (saxophonist) and DJ Mike Lowry, they produce a unique sound that blurs the lines that separate punk rock and high energy hip hop.

"Astronauts Really Fly", as their brand, was a concept inspired from Guion Bluford Jr, a West Philadelphia native, that was the first African American to travel into space. Mont Brown was introduced to Pace-O Beats to collaborate on musical production and soon after, the elements began to take form. Each "astronaut" added to the band then on possessed a musical gift that took their production to new heights. In turn, Mont Brown ran with the inspiration from Bluford that anyone can do anything; the sky is no longer the limit.

Their musical chemistry draws crowds and excites fans as they perform every song with soul and over-the-top energy. ARF is raising the bar to outer space and expanding their brand to other forms of art. The band has launched a self-titled clothing line that is sold locally at The Villa locations. ARF also values community outreach and always finds time to give back. They're not just a band, but a movement on a mission. Watch them soar.
