Astra Via – SUPERBESTLUCKYSONGS video

Here’s another great video we missed during the winter break. You all know that electronic pop outfit Astra Via is Jarrett Nicolay from Virginia Coalition and Olivia Mancini from her Mates, right? Right! Late last year they released a 3 song EP called SUPERBESTLUCKYSONGS and made music videos for each song. But instead of releasing them separately, why not stitch them together in one epic twelve minute long melange? Watch Astra Via’s goofy and lovable videos for “Good On You”, “And It Tried To Rain” and “Action Junky”, then buy the EP from Aerobic International.

Astra Via – Push/Pull video

Staying in town this Thanksgiving weekend? DC9 has a great all-local lineup on Saturday night with Addieville, Derek Evry & His Band of Misanthropes, and headliners Astra Via. We told you before about this great pairing of long time DC musicians Jarret Nicolay and Olivia Mancini. Today we’ve got another well-shot live performance captured by the folks at Pick Up Productions for their Blue Light Sessions series. Push/Pull comes from Astra Via’s FREE debut EP Folie à Deux. Happy Thanksgiving DC!

Astra Via – Fame video

Pop duo Astra Via is a local music “supergroup” of Jarrett Nicolay, founding member of Virginia Coalition, and Olivia Mancini, from Washington Social Club and The Housemates, which add up to more than the already substantial component parts. This is the stuff that should be capturing everyone’s hearts on FM radio across the country. The band created a really fun video for the lead-off track Fame, from their FREE debut EP Folie à Deux, inspired by the game Operation.

Catch Olivia with her band The Mates Friday night at the Red Palace on H Street NE!
