Based out of Dunedin, New Zealand, Astro Children are an oblique and uncompromising two-piece made up of Millie Lovelock and Isaac Hickey. Since meeting at the age of seven, Lovelock and Hickey have been making music together for the better part of ten years. The group are described by the Red Bull Music Academy as producing music that "commands your attention [...] with a delivery that oscillates between angst-ridden and blasé."
In 2012, Astro Children made their debut with EP Lick My Spaceship. In 2013, the duo released their first album, Proteus, a furiously lo-fi tribute to James Joyce's Ulysses, via Muzai Records. Since 2016, the band have released an EP (Plain and Fancy Killings), a split seven inch with Auckland punks Miss June, and a seven inch featuring singles off their upcoming album, Turnpike.
Turnpike is expected to be released late 2o18, and following a stint at the Red Bull Music Academy in Berlin, the group will tour Europe and the United Kingdom.
