When learning of a band who wears their fascination with spaceships, videogames and hyper-accentuated technology on their sleeve as Antennas Up does, one might make the assumption that their obsession is a reflection of a rather cold persona. Any pre-conceived notions of frigid, scientific vibes are quickly swept away by dance floor-worthy grooves that share loyalties to funk, neo-soul and electro-robot rock.
In 2008, Antennas Up formed in Kansas City and began work on their debut album. Guitarist and world traveler Bo McCall and drummer/programming genius The Ryantist met on their high school marching band's drumline. Meeting up with Kyle Akers in college, they began writing and touring together.
AU has recently shared the stage with Girl Talk, Electric Six, Ha Ha Tonka and an official showcase at 2010's South By Southwest. Their music has been featured in the best-selling Ipod app 'Tap Tap Revenge 3' and their Spaceship music video has reached more than 80,000 views on Youtube.
