about

Astrometrics Turku, Finland

Astrometrics is an independent melodic geek rock / space rock band from Turku (Finland) formed in 2012. Their first three- song EP, "Engage!", was published in September 2015.

The band's songs often mix electronic sounds (made with the Commodore 64 soundchip SID) with somewhat geeky lyrics involving the zombie apocalypse, battles in space, alternative societies or the history of the calculus.

Track Name: I Have Heard of a Place
I have heard of a place that is not so far from here
would you like to join me and see if we can hitch a ride?
It's enough to put your thumb up and wait until some passers-by
stop and offer to take us further in their car

It doesn't matter if we don't make it all the way before the night falls
can you see the glowing lights there across the field?
We can ask for shelter there, to spend the night, be on our way
in the morning, our journey recommence

I'm sure we'll make it there with the help from all these people
A good deed is never a keeper, we will pass it on

Once we've reached our destination, we will send out an invitation
to all those who are willing to heed our call
If you want to do what we have done and join us where we are
it is easy, just ask the person next to you
Track Name: Vampires Suck, Zombies Rule
Have you noticed vampires getting far too much love
to the detriment of other groups of undead?
Those elitist bastards skulking in their castles
sleeping in their velvet-cushioned coffins
shunning daylight in their mansions
like they had something to hide

Vampires suck, they're so not cool
Vampires suck – but zombies rule

You might think they're both just living corpses
but that's not quite true
In fact there is a crucial difference: zombies have great numbers
but vampires are few

Zombies are many, vampires are few
Zombies are many, vampires are few

When the zombies rise up
all the vampires can do
is to flee to distant mountains
where the mummies are hiding too
Track Name: Marja Hintikka / Talking on the Telephone of Love
I want to be talking on the telephone of love
Everybody's talking on the telephone of love
They are still talking on the telephone of love
I want to be talking on the telephone of love

Marja Hintikka ei enää soita levyjä radiossa
eikä Heikin kanssa nosta rakkauden luuria
Marja Hintikka esiintyy nyt vain televisiossa

The telephone of love was given
to the guy who brought the boy back home
The telephone of love was given
to the guy who brought the boy back home
The telephone of love was given
to the guy who brought the boy back home
The telephone of love was given
to the guy who brought the boy back home

Marja Hintikka ei enää soita levyjä radiossa
eikä Heikin kanssa nosta rakkauden luuria
Marja Hintikka esiintyy nyt vain televisiossa
