Formed in Philadelphia and now based in Northern California, The Asteroid No. 4 have been melting minds since the late '90s, with a prolific discography of reverb-drenched recordings that span the sonic spectrum. Influenced by the finest psychedelic bands of every era, from The Beatles to The Rain Parade to Spacemen 3, the group has a unique sound that expands exponentially under the liquid light projections of their fabled live performances. A bespoke slice of stellar psych pop crafted especially for Hypnotic Bridge, 'Under My Umbrella' finds The Asteroid No. 4 time-tripping back to the heyday of psychedelia's first wave. With prerequisite ADT vocal recording, Leslie speakers, Mellotron, harpsichord and backward guitars, the band pays homage to revered masters such as Tomorrow, The Beatles, The Bee Gees, Donavon, The Hollies (and many more), embracing the atmosphere of London circa 1967 so succinctly that many listeners assume the song is a long-lost classic of the era. 'House Of The Seventh Moon' takes a more organic approach, enveloping listeners with echoes of The Moody Blues, Grapefruit, Orange Bicycle, early Hawkwind and legendary Bay Area bands that shaped the soundscape of The Asteroid No. 4's current home. Which is appropriate, as the rich Victorian vernacular of San Francisco and the idyllic countryside of Northern California inspired not only the songs on this single, but also the complementary artwork by one of the band's favorite artists, Andrew McGranahan, who employed vintage imagery enhanced with a thoroughly modern color palate.
