"Astro'n'out last album "LAUVAS""

A broken funky drumbeat, airy guitars and a thomping staccato bass roll. Electrinics melts the track togeher after the first verse and lifts the song up.... - Europopmusic.eu


"winter pop with great melodic spirals and wrapping sound"

"Musik zum Abheben: Exklusiv-Interview mit der "Astro`n`out"-Sängerin Mara Upmane"

Fantasie, Gefühl und Originalität prägen den Sound: Gitarren und Schlagzeug wechseln zwischen hard und soft, zwischen schnellen und langsamen Rhythmen. Besonders charakteristisch ist der Vokal der Lead-Sängerin Mara Upmane, der Musiksender MTV bezeichnet ihn als “eine der schönsten Stimmen Lettlands”. - lettische-presseschau.de

"Astro'n'Out's Likeable Latvian Pop Video"

You know who is kind of awesome? Latvia's Astro'n'out. Late last year, they released this cute clip for "Ka Luksofors" and I like it. The Riga-based fivesome has been around for years (they were nominated in the category of “New Sounds of Europe” back in 2007 for MTV Europe's awards that year), but this is their latest and I'm feeling it. Come tour America, guys. - EUROPOPPED
