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. The track has since garnered over 6 million plays on Spotify and catapulted the band onto the international music scene.
With appearances at Firefly Festival, Summerfest 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.
Future Nature, the band's debut EP was recently released in April on Harbour Records/Caroline. 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.
"West Coast", the new Top 5 Alternative Specialty radio single from Minneapolis' StepRockets, 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 bigger. A return to form for the Twin Cities-based band, "West Coast" marries that Minneapolis sensibility with a tribal pop-rock sound.
