Emerging from the Vancouver indie music scene, Astoria quickly cemented an impressive original combination of potent vocal outpourings, slashing delayed guitar, solid drumming and emotive bass lines. Their anthemic lyrics challenge listeners to awake from the modern day slumber, and to embrace life to the fullest.
Formed in 2003, Astoria is influenced by the post-punk sounds of the 80s and the indie-rock heroes of the 90s, with a sound that is tailor-made for radio and stadiums.
Astoria has showcased in Shindig! 2005 and NewMusicWest 2006 where their live shows made a big impact. Their live debut at The Roxy in Vancouver saw them perform to an enthusiastic audience of over 200 people and their audience continues to grow as word of their talent spreads. Astoria's debut EP 'Daylight For Delay,' was released in September 2005.
