Autodrone formed in 2002, based on a love of all things dark, atmospheric, and experimental, fitted with a dream-pop backbone. Autodrone Seamlessly meld the sonic dynamics of noise and pop with throbbing bass lines, jagged, angular synths, searing dark atmospheric guitars and urgent banshee vocals, Autodrone have no problem reaching out from the stage to the crowd, grabbing you by the throat, and screaming in your face, even when sometimes they are whispering.
Their shows are an intense emotional surge for the band and audience alike. Their self-released EPs and notorious performance art-colored live shows have quickly developed the attention of the UK and American Press garnering universally favorable reviews, while easily selling out of print.
The Strike A Match LP is Autodrone's latest studio effort. Their debut LP is darker, denser, and more experimental, yet more catchy and hook-laden than any of their previous work. The album has received a deluge of critical acclaim and has made it onto multiple "best of 2007" lists, though was at the time unreleased. Strike A Match caught the attention of the indie Label Clairecords, who released the CD November of 2008. Currently they are busy completing work on their next LP, and touring as much as possible!
Autodrone is composed of four lifelong friends, who are absolutely in love with music, they have toured the East and West Coast as well as Europe in support of both the Panic EP and Strike A Match LP, and have played festivals such as Pop Noise, ATJ, NEMO, Northside Festival, SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, and CMJ multiple times.
