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. Their third full length LP Music That Humans Can Play appears this November via Stomp Records (and Beluga Records EU) and will be available on vinyl and digital formats worldwide. The band dedicated themselves to bringing in sounds from influences like The Fixx, David Bowie, Cheap Trick, The Boys, The Dickies, Jay Reatard, and Prince. They continued the band’s tradition of crafting new wave gems with a power pop twist. The result is a decisively cohesive album that will fit easily into the 80's section of your record collection, with songs so well-crafted they probably deserve to be on the soundtrack of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Autogramm has long-standing connections to the art, punk, and skateboarding communities of the various cities and scenes they have been a part of: Vancouver, Berlin, New York, Calgary, Seattle, and Chicago.

They've charted well on US/CDN college radio with rotation at WFMU and KEXP and reached #12 on the Earshot Campus Radio Charts. Their single “Mantra” made it to #3 on CBC Radio 3 and saw rotation on SXM’s The Verge, Rodney on the Rock, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage.

A driving power pop delight, filled to the brim with sweet hooks and expressive performances.

Under The Radar, USA

You can hang this up at any eighties party and argue with anybody who says otherwise. A mash-up of new wave and powerpop.

Ox Magazine, Germany

The only rule that this band adheres to is executing everything with cool style. Given the pedigree of the three musicians driving the project, it doesn’t come as any surprise that No Rules sounds so accomplished.

Vancouver Sun, CA

Full of catchy well-crafted singalong pop-anthems, so just listen, get up and dance, and leave all your inhibitions behind.

Louder Than War, UK

A thick layer of New Wave with a jacket of synth-soaked power pop reminiscent of Gary Numan and his ilk.
