Astronoid is Brett Boland (vocals/guitar), Daniel Schwartz (bass), Casey Aylward (guitar), and Matt. St. Jean (drums). The Boston quartet have released two full-length albums and two EPs: November(EP, 2012), Stargazer (EP, 2013), Air (2016) and Astronoid (2019). Brooklyn Vegan said of the band’s music: “the word ‘genre-defying’ gets thrown around a lot, but it’s not every day that you hear a band really earn it like Astronoid. They sound like so many things at once, but it all comes together in a way that sounds seamless…” NPR said they create “a surprisingly effective mix of shoegaze-y blast beats, pretty pop-punk singalongs and post-rock ambiance,” and Treble Zine praised the band, adding “there are simply so many elements to their music that still feel like novelties in much of heavy music…”
