Mixing the dazzle of disco with the immediacy of punk rock, Christian Hansen & the Autistics are a sweat and love fest of epic proportions.
“Is it pop? Is it punk? Who cares. When a band is this dedicated to their audience, you categorize it under ‘fun.’” (NXNE Review)
Canadian Art-Popsters Christian Hansen & the Autistics mix the dazzle of disco with the punch of punk rock. Theatrical live shows, dark lyricism and melodies catchier than the common cold; welcome to the thinking person’s dance party.

“CH&A slather disarmingly thoughtful lyricism in buoyant synth-driven rhythms that borrow heavily from late 80s/early 90s club fare, bling-addled hip hop, and the AM radio dial. Expect ebullient dance-pop that drives an arrow into the bemusements, bewilderments, and bereavements of modern life, from the petty to profound, while compelling your hips to shake, feet to shuffle and fists to pump the sky.” (Sled Island Festival preview)
