About Astronomique: Minneapolis-based space wave band, Astronomique, arose out of inspiration from French visual artist/singer/keyboardist, Logan Andra Fongemie’s (Satellite Voices), 1960s Space Age-themed drawings and paintings. In imagining a musical complement to her psychedelic artwork, Fongemie collaborated with guitarist, Sean Hogan (The New Monarchs), to create darker, dancey synthpop that would radiate a spacey French vibe. The band came by their name through a French picture book from Fongemie’s childhood, in which the words, “lunette astronomique,” were written beneath an illustration of a telescope. The later addition of drummer, Mitch Billings, to the former two-piece would spark the merging of organic elements with what began as a strictly electronic duo.
