Autogramm drop a new wave synth driven track on our laps ‘WannaBe’

Seattle, Chicago, and Vancouver’s synth-driven power-poppers, Autogramm, are back with a bang!

They’ve just announced their latest LP, “Music That Humans Can Play,” along with an advance single and video for the track “WannaBe.”

This album, their first in over two years, is set to drop on November 17th worldwide in vinyl and digital formats, courtesy of Stomp Records (and Beluga Records EU).


Continuing their tradition of crafting new wave gems with a power pop twist, Autogramm draws inspiration from legends like The Cars, The Go-Go’s, Gary Numan, 20/20, and Devo. This album is a must-have for any 80’s music enthusiast, and its finely crafted songs could easily find a home on the soundtrack of “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

The video for “WannaBe” was brilliantly shot and directed by Jeffry Lee in East Vancouver. It captures the band against a superimposed digital backdrop, giving off those quintessential 80’s vibes. Drummer/singer The Silo shares that the song is a declaration of unconditional love and support for anyone undergoing self-discovery and change.

Autogramm has a profound connection with the art, punk, and skateboarding communities worldwide. Their extensive tour history includes notable venues in Canada, Mexico, the US, the UK, and Europe. Their previous album, “No Rules,” soared to #3 on CBC Radio 3, and enjoyed extensive college radio play. Their single, “Mantra,” also made waves on SXM’s The Verge, Rodney on the Rock, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage.

The band members, Jiffy Marx, CC Voltage, Lars Von Seattle, and The Silo, bring a wealth of musical experience to this project. “Music That Humans Can Play” was recorded in the sweltering heatwave of August 2022 in Vancouver BC, resulting in an album that’s as cool as it gets – sure to captivate a diverse range of listeners.

Stay tuned for a sonic journey that will resonate with everyone, from discerning record collectors to garage rock aficionados and synth-pop aficionados alike!
