Metagirl & the Earth Passengers

2020 gigging

Arty alternative meets high-octane rock

Metagirl & the Earth Passengers is an original band out of New York City that blends the pretty with the hard, the jazz-inflected with the punked-out, the rich and creamy with the occasional jagged edge. The result is a sound that is at turns mellifluent, philosophically toned and full-tilt rock.

"Let the Skies Fall" captures the sound that is making them one of NYC's up-and-coming groups. With clear musical and lyrical influences from the Pretenders, Joe Jackson, Sheryl Crowe and Squeeze, their original songs are energetic and engaging, poetically evocative and melodically infectious. Lyrically, the themes of modern living and troubled romance may be familiar, but how many acts do you know feature what may or may not be a love song that delves into quantum physics?

After taking a few months off to regroup, they are performing again with the best lineup yet and a string of new songs.
