Rock Hunt 2015 finalist, We Were Astronauts, is next up on the WBRU Dunkin Donuts Summer Concert Series stage, but you don’t have to wait ’till then to see them: they came in for a HomeBRU’d session, and we have the video for you. The band is a lot of fun–they’re high energy but easygoing, and they balance their shenanigans with rock-solid songs that rest on strong musicianship and harmonic sensibility. The last time they came into the station, they went acoustic with no drums; this time around, they had a full band! They also–possibly their most impressive accomplishment of the night–managed to wrangle themselves into completing 5 in 95 in record time. Did they become the first band ever to answer the interview questions in under 95 seconds? See for yourself below.

 

 

Turn out for our third Summer Concert Series show, featuring We Were Astronauts opening for Saint Motel, this Friday, 7/31 at 7:15pm – FREE as always!
