Autogramm is a synth-driven, power pop quartet from Seattle, Chicago, and Vancouver that draws influences from the likes of The Cars, The Go-Go’s, Gary Numan, 20/20, and Devo. This new wave inspired band is a departure from their other various projects (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Spun Out, Black Halos, Catheters), but they have already graced the pages of international press like Under the Radar, Consequence of Sound, Louder Than War and Exclaim! Their last album No Rules charted for five months at college radio in both the US and Canada. The single “Mantra” also saw rotation on SXM’s The Verge, Rodney on the Rock, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage
