Stars was released by The Label Recordings on 16th February 2015.
There’s a great sound and vibe to this song, it creates a great tension between the jangly guitar riff and shoegaze feel of parts of the song. The vocals have a laid back feel and create a nice edge.
The song opens with a great jangly riff which is a theme of the song which is propelled by solid drumming. The vocals create a great tension against this jangly riff by having a laid back and shoegaze feel to them at times. There’s also a really nice change to a more uptempo feel in the chorus.
