Galaxie 500 is such a legendary group that it should hardly surprise anyone that new East London based dream pop duo of Nathalie Bruno and Italian Jack Milwaukee looked to their favorite group when considering their name, Leave the Planet. The duo formed when Nathalie moved into the same flat as Jack and discovered a mutual love for bands like Slowdive, Felt and early Sarah Records releases, such as Field Mice and The Orchids. Their sound uses a dynamic mix of vintage synths, drum machines and guitars to create a blissful wave of modern shoegaze. Although their sound hints at past greats on Creation Records in the early 90s, Leave the Planet sounds fresh and modern.
Leave the Planet has released two digital singles “Coasts” and “Winter Sleep”. They are looking forward to their first US shows this February.
