Hear The First Single “West Coast” From Step Rocket’s New EP ‘Future Nature’ Out April 15th!
“West Coast”, the new single from Minneapolis’ Step Rockets, picks up where the band left off. Mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Moby), the single quickly kicks into the band’s signature blend of pop rock and the Minneapolis sound — and the band has never sounded
A return to form for the Minneapolis-based band, “West Coast” marries that Minneapolis sensibility with a tribal pop-rock sound. The radio-friendly track is infused with a certain worldliness, kicking off with an eastern-inspired synth. This song will make you want to move.
Future Nature, coming out April 15th on Harbour / Caroline Records, is the new EP from Step Rockets, who were previously likened to Cold War Kids, Atlas Genius and Born Ruffians by Indie Shuffle.
Future Nature showcases Step Rockets’ full palette with previous single “Kisser” and summery Motown-influenced “Love Is Just A Chemical”, among others.
About the Band:
It didn’t take long for Step Rockets to take off. Their self-released single “Kisser”found its way to #1 on the Hype Machine charts just two weeks after its release despite virtually no publicity. The track has since garnered over 5.5 million plays on Spotify and catapulted the
band onto the international music scene. With appearances at Firefly Festival, Summerfest, SXSW, CMJ, Canadian Music Week and a
slew of other festivals and major venues across North America, Step Rockets have developed a reputation as one of the most exciting new live bands on the scene, seamlessly blending wailing guitar solos and anthemic melodies with infectious dance grooves.
Step Rockets continue to push the boundaries of indie pop with unique instrumentation and progressive songwriting. The band’s music has been featured in TV shows and commercials, including placements in Showtime’s Shameless and ABC’s Cougartown. Their music exemplifies a cosmic divergence of the past, present and future, focused around memorable melodies and powerful lyrics.
The band has released a collection of popular singles including “Kisser” and “Turning Tides (By Your Side)” – as well as remixes
and videos – that all lead up to their highly anticipated debut EP, Future Nature, scheduled for an early April 2016 release (on Harbour/Caroline). Step Rockets will be on tour this spring in support of the new EP and the first single, “West Coast”.
Release Date: April 15, 2016
