Astro is an indie band from Santiago, Chile, formed in 2008. The quartet released its first self-titled album in 2011. Despite being entirely in Spanish, the album received attention from American music critics, particularly from NPR who described them as “infectiously cheery, lighthearted and danceable.” and as musical cognates with American bands such as MGMT, Animal Collective and Passion Pit.
Astro returned in 2015 with ‘Chicos de la Luz’ and shortly after, sadly, they broke up. These are the last copies of the homonymous debut that established them as one of Latin-America’s most successful indie bands of the last decade.
